    Help :(

    I was on the birthcontrol orsythia for four months, however it made me break out in horrible acne along my jawline, down my neck, on my chin and all over my cheeks. My acne was never this bad before the pill so I switched to yaz hoping it will help. I've been on yaz for 18 days and my acne seems to still be the same and in some spots it looks worse. I've heard it takes about 3 months to start seeing any results for your skin, but I'm getting really discouraged.

    Does anyone have any similar stories or any advice they can offer?

    Thanks so much

    It can take up to six months for the skin to clear up, or it can be that the amount of estrogen in these pill is just too much for you. Youll need to talk to your prescribing doctor to get her advice on this. Unfortunately, this isnt an across the board answer, everyone is different.
