Question Ortho Try-Cyclen

Hey you guys iv been on ortho try cyclen since august. My skin is breaking out but now it just seems to be the redness and scars leftover, nothing active so to speak. Has anyone experienced an initial breakout with this drug? What have your experiences with it been?

The first couple months that I was on OTC, I had an initial breakout. It wasn't anything too bad. After the third or fourth month, it's worked great for me.

I was on Ortho Tri - twice. The most recent time the ortho cleared my face, it took 3 months but it did clear up almost my entire face. I recently went off the pill and I am still experiencing a breakout period. I understand that it will take almost double the time to get this completely out of your system.

I would stick it out until November and see if it begins to clear your face. Like I said it took me 3 months to see any results. Good luck.
