no thx

Yeah, so I've been on the generic Alysena for about a month and a half now but I literally just made the decision to quit mid-pack. This isn't the pill for me!! I've never had skin issues before, but after starting this pill I've been breaking out non-stop along with having terrible mood swings. I'm talking 2 hour long crying episodes. I also think a lot of the sad periods I've been having are due to the lost confidence I'm experiencing thanks to my newly-blemished skin. I know you're supposed to give your body three months to adjust but I just don't have the patience. Hopefully my skin will return to normal asap! I'll post an update in 2 weeks.

Made Me Breakout
This is the third birth control pill that I have been on, and I've been on it for probably about 6 months now. This pill made my acne ten times worse in just the first week of being on it. The only positive thing is it didn't make me nauseous/throw up like the other ones I've been on, but in terms of assisting my acne it did not work at all. After a few months my acne started to settle down from the initial flare up, but it definitely is still worse than it was before I was on the pill, and definitely not anywhere near where I'd like to be. The initial flare up began on my forhead and slowly spread onto other areas of my face such as my chin, temples and cheeks. I'm going to the doctor next week as I only have one refill of this pill left and I want to get switched.
