Hi all, 

About 3 weeks ago I started taking the contraceptive pill 'Dianette', prescribed specifically for my jawline/neck acne. Prior to this I haven't been on any form of hormonal contraception for 4 years, so my body was in its 'natural state' as I call it. I've only really had increased appetite as a side effect but the last day or two I've notices a sudden increase in papules along my neck, and even appearing on my shoulders and chest. Could this be a normal thing to happen when taking a new contraceptive pill? I'm trying not to let myself worry about it but it does cause a concern when places like my chest had never had pimples, now suddenly have about 6. Of course I'll keep going as I'm only 3 weeks in but I like to be logical about my experience and it would help to know of others had experienced an initial breakout when starting the pill. 


Any advice or experiences would be truly appreciated. 


Thanks all!
