Hi, everyone! I was wondering if any of you taking birth control experienced your acne clearing up? Nothing else works for me right now!

Yes! I went on BC right before I got married and it dried up my skin really well. HOWEVER, I am off it already [less than year], because I did not like the other side effects. I used one tampon my whole period and I felt bloated 24/7. The pill does a really good job on reducing/eliminating acne, but you need to talk to your doctor first to make sure that it is O.K.

It does help, but like others have said it might come back once you stop taking it! Talk to your doctor about certain types/brands of birth control that might help! My friend says the pill works really well for her in reducing acne but she has to buy a certain brand that is more expensive. I take a generic brand of birth control, and I haven’t seen that much of a difference personally!

Birth control sure helps with acne…. but it might not be the best solution :/
I’ve heard that roaccutane always clears up acne very well, and I’ve got a few friends on it at the moment but the side effects can be a bit nasty..

BC definitely helps with acne. I have been on it for almost 3 years and my acne is like maybe 1 pimple a month, if that. The BC’s that are FDA approved for helping with your skin are Ortho-Tri-Cyclen, and Yaz, but i think really any BC would help.
