Post Yasmin breakout........?? Please help..

I have been on yasmin for 17 days....I was really seeing my skin get better and now in the last few days ...boom! It seems like the tiny ones that have been under my skin and never dome out are all emerging as oil filled tiny an army!!
The only other things I use in Glycolic acid facial wash (4 years) and jojoba oil sparingly to moisturize (3 weeks).
Question- does the yasmin or jojoba oil do this? Is this an initial breakout from the yasmin? My breasts are now tender (about 4 days). so does that mean it is just now in my system?? I read where it can actually cause can this be if it is supposed to block all that junk??? I won't be taking the placebo pills but will rather go on to another pack right after this one in 4 days. Anyone else have problems with this? How can I look like I'm clearing and then start breaking out in all the same old places again??

Dear Laur,

All I can suggest to you is to keep on going with the Yasmin. When you start taking a new birth control, your body needs time to adjust its hormone levels/fluctuations with the set hormone levels/fluctuations of your pill. For some women, their bodies adjust easily, and they won't have an initial breakout. For others, they will. You just have to get through this hurdle. It may go away next week, or it may stick around for a few more cycles. Give your body more credit, and let it get used to the hormones. I am sure you will do fine. Also; I don't believe jojoba oil causes break-outs. I've read it's supposed to mimic your bodies natural sebum. Most initial break-outs are a result of a medication "bringing out" all the zits that are under your skin, that would've normally popped out gradually, instead of all at the same time.
