Contraceptive implant + acne

22 years old and still struggling with acne! Very persistent & inflamed. Been using the contraceptive implant for 6 years, always been told it has no link to acne until I saw a dermatologist who told me it could potentially be a factor. Made an appt to get it removed but the doctor wouldn't allow me to have it removed due to it being a good form of contraception, and pushed me to go on isotretinoin (which I'm really not keen on).

Has anyone had an experience of acne related to a contraceptive implant? Sorry if this has been addressed already!
