is taking birth control for acne a good idea?

I personally wouldn't take it just for acne. I was on the pill for two years because I had hormone issues, but I had trouble keeping my routine totally stable and I'd forget a pill every once in a while. When I tried to get off of it, it only made my acne worse while my body tried to adjust. It caused other issues besides acne and I didn't notice my acne being much less noticeable while I was on the pill anyway. There are lots of other treatments besides BC to try if you're dealing with hormonal acne like I was!
