    I havent read anything about the Nuvaring and acne, but I've read about Ortho-Evra helping with acne. It's probably a good idea to ask your doctor when you go to get a prescription. They'll be able to look at the form of progestin in each method and decide which one will be better to reduce your acne.

    Thanks so much for the replies girls! I'm so confused on which one to go on, I don't really know what to do>?? They are suppose to have lower estrogen than other bcp's?? Also why did you go off nuva ring if you don't mind me asking???
    Thanks so much again!!

    They are both very low estrogen.

    I was on Estrostep FE for 3 years and my skin was great! I just started the patch about 3 months ago and it brought all the acne out on my face and now it is slowly starting to go away. I guess it has to bring it out before it can go away. I don't remember what happened with Estrostep as far as it coming out before it went away but I do know that I rarely ever had a breakout with that pill. Good luck

    the ring slid down a couple of times for me, not all the way out or anything, but enough so I could just barely feel it. enough to bother me a little. so id take it out and rinse it and then put it back in, and a few days later the same thing happened. (i never had sex with it, i originally took it for ovarian cysts)... i just didnt want to deal with doing that. id rather take a pill. but i guess the sliding thing isnt a problem for most people, so good luck!

    I was on Ortho Evra for 1 1/2 years and my skin never looked worse. I broke out horribly on it, plus it would constantly make me sick. Although the patch is extremely convenient, it wasn't worth it for me, unfortunately.

    I was on the ring for 6 months and it made me break out. (i normally have really clear skin) but then again the same sort of thing happened when I was pregnant so its just the hormones. the main reason I stopped using it was because it was giving me yeast infections and slipping down all the time. My doctor says he usually doesn't recommend nuva ring to women becuase so many complain about it.
