I've never tried ortho, but I'm on mircette which has given me no bad side effects. I was nauseous only the first 2 days I took it.
To avoid the hyperpigmentation that one girl spoke about, use sunscreen- it's good for skin in general anyway, and will also help fade red marks.
Ortho definitely makes your skin worse at the beginning - as can ANY bcp according to my dermatologist.
: I just started taking Ortho Tri-cyclene 13 days ago. My face hasn't looked this yucky in a long time!!! I am wondering if this is normal? Is this my face's way of saying, "Excuse me, while I get used to this stuff!!!"? I am feeling a bit blue since I had been hoping so long that this would be the answer!! Am I that 1 out of the 10 women that it doesn't help, or am I just extremely impatient??? Please reply, I know this has been an issue before : )
