Acne board


I'm 18 and have had mild acne up until a few months ago when it became severe (meaning that it is most likely hormonal because of my age). My dermatologist prescribed Benzoyl Peroxide, Retin A Micro, Doxycycline and I am supposed to start yasmin next week.
Here's my question for all of you: I'm responding very well to myother meds and only have 2 (!!!) pimples and improving (also some scarring)... do you think it's worth the initial breakout to add yasmin to my regimine? or should I consider just staying with my current routine? I'm not so much affraid of the breakout itself, but the scars that might result (my only scars are from the retin a micro breakout). Let me know what you Yasmin veterans think. Thanks!!
