Birth Control Pills and Acne-

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions for birth control pills to try that control acne?

Im currently on Estrostep and it sucks. I've heard Orthotricyclen- but that's the obvious choice..plus alot of people complain of migraines on that pill... Which i suffer from already. SO... Any other suggetions? If you've used orthotricyclen..did it work for you?

I'm on my first month of tri-sprintec, which is a generic of orthotricyclen. I think it made me break out a little moer at the beginning, but thinfs seem to be claming down now. My doctor told me that pretty much ALL ortho pills are helpful for acne. Hope you find one that works for you.

I'm coming to the end of my third month on orthotricyclen...not to scare you, but it did badly break my face out for a while in cysts...that really sucked...it is calming down now..but i am still breaking out, not really in cysts anymore, but little blemishes here and there...it helps to use a good topical, i use benzaclin...although benzaclin is very drying. Goodluck.

really liking yasmin. no breakouts. and low dose so side effects supposed to be mild... was on diane and that was horrible for me- strong stuff- made me gain weight and become really emotional.
