I have been on it for a month and my face WENT CRAZY. i was actually doing pretty good with my skin regimen and my face was clear and as soon as i started it broke me out all over my face. on places i do not even usually break out in.
I've been on Ortho Tri-Cyclen for about 5 years now. I do remember breaking out when I started taking the pill and I can say YES it gets better! At the time I had very oily skin and I sweat like a man at the gym so being mindful about not touching my face or wearing too much makeup to let my skin breathe. Try looking into cleansers with salicylic acid or a good facial toner to balance your skin. Be patient and give your body some time to adjust to the extra hormones.
