I've struggled with acne problems since i was 13 years old. I've tried everything in the book from demo visits to over the counter supplements to many different birth control pills such as Yaz, Yasmin and now I'm on Ortho Tri Cyclen. When testing out different birth controls for my acne I struggled with the 3 months of it getting worse before it got better, I started getting less big hurtful pimples and now I have lots of black heads and white heads around my jawline, chin, and cheeks. I'm not the best at taking my birth control pills on time, nor am I good at remembering to take them at all. Could this be why I haven't had any luck with birth control clearing and regulating my acne?? And if so, can being on the pill be effecting me worse, then being off of it?
