... put me on was ortho tri cyclin Lo. The reason i went on birthe control in the first place was to regulate acne breakouts. i was on ortho tri cyclin lo for about 2 years then my doctor switched me to ortho cylin. so i was on that for another 2 years and now i am also using it for birth control rather than just acne. ortho tri cyclin really helped with my acne, and i have noticed that my acne is worse with ortho cyclin. so i was wondering if it was okay to switch back to ortho tri cyclin to use for birth control as well as acne control again? the reason i ask is because i know that ortho cyclin is a high dose and my body is probably amuune to the high dosage. so if i switch to tri cyclin lo since it is a lower dose will it still prevent pregnancy??
I think thay it should still work, but you will have be careful, and probably use an other form of contraceptive to start with just to ensure that you are safe. Why not ask your doctor or GP for advice, or visit a family planning clinic where they will check out your health, and advice on the two types of pills and how best to protect yourself .
