Re: Orthocyclin causing acne
Ortho Cyclen was the first birth control pill I ever took. I have acne, but the Ortho Cyclen really seemed to make it worse. I tried it for 6 months, and only got more acne. I would say that I had a 75% increase in the occurence of cysts.
Since then, I have been on Estrostep FE, Nordette 28, Ortho Tricyclen Lo, and now generic Ortho Tricyclen. All of them were much better for my skin than the Ortho Cyclen. But everyone is different.
If you have any questions, feel free!
