i need help!!! (OTC)

I have moderate-severe acne, on my face, neck, chest and back. It's sooo frustrating! So I went on Ortho-tri cyclen. I've been on it for 4 months now, and i have seen improvement, BUT, i still breakout like mad. Right now i have a lot on my back. It's so frustrating!

My question is....i've been on it 4 months, should I wait longer to see if there is any more improvement? how long does it take to fully kick in? Also, when i was on the week of my period just this last one, i seen more improvement, when i wasn't even taking the pill? ??

I don't get it! any help would be mucho appreciated!
