Here goes nothing: 

So I was put on Ocella in July. And I took that for a little over 2 months. I noticed that whenever my placebo week came around, my skin would instantly clear up. I was so frustrated that I stopped midway through the third pack. I was still breaking out on and off for two weeks  after, and so my dermatologist and gynecologist both recommended me to re start the pills for another 3 months. 

I am on my third week of Ocella, and my skin is even worse than the first time around. I wake up with a new cyst on my face daily. My confidence has taken a  knock and my skin is scarring badly. I am really unsure of what to do. I was going to skip the placebos, to help my skin adjust, but now feel as though I should see if the placebo week clears me. 

I want to quit so bad, does anyone have any similar experiences?
