Just went off birth control-new breakouts!

I have been doing the regimen and it worked great. My skin was really clear and I had a few red spots. I recently went off birth control and noticed immediately that my skin had starting breaking out. Its not horrible, but it seemed almost instantaneously that new breakouts occured. I am hoping that once my body gets back to normal from not taking the pill, the skin regimen will work like it did before.

Has anyone had this experience? And if so, how is your skin now?

Thanks! :D

I'm on TriNessa to help maintain my acne. I found that inbetween my pap. appts (I'm usually late on these because.. well I just hate those exams!) I break-out from my break off of my birth control pills. The down side is that once I am back on the pill again, it usually takes about 3 months for the acne to completely dissapear. Like right now, I am having a break-out. This time, however, I am on some antibiotics for the first time (for acne) and it has helped immensely and I don't know why I waited so long.

I went off BCP end of December 2004, and it took about 10 months for my skin to settle down and then start to look 'decent' again. I was NOT happy, and I was even breaking out in places I'd never gotten acne before (along cheek bones).
