Post Progestin only BCP - acne anyone? (mini-pill)

Hi there...looking for both good and bad experiences of any ladies who have been on the "mini-pill", otherwise known as the Progestin only birth control pill (no estrogen). Please post your situations here. Thanks!

i never took it, but my little sister did, and it did a great job at controlling her monthly breakouts. The downside was she got pregnant!
One needs to be really careful with the mini-pill if it's being used as a contraceptive.
