    I'm surprised the patch would make your acne worse, as it's a form of birth control, which usually helps acne. And all the 'ortho' products are good for clearing acne. Sometimes birth control can make your skin worse before it gets better. Give the patch at least three months, and on top of your acne medication, it should get a lot better.

    i am on yasmin and still taking mino right now, i accually started the yasmin in order to get off the mino, it's not been qutie a month, the birth control (yasmin) seems to be messing me up, i've had my period the entire month, NOT far as clearing my skin, i have a mild initial breakout or something i think.
