Is anyone else taking this? I started taking it 3.5 weeks ago and my skin has been really terrible since. Does anyone else have this problem or have any knowledge about it? I am hoping it will get better, so I don't really want to stop taking it.
I havent started it yet but Im planning on asking for a prescription at my appointment on the 4th, but that's what I'm worried about too. I've tried a few different pills before, and I've only found ONE that didn't make my face break out.
I tend to have pretty sensitive skin. The first few months of pregnancy I broke out really bad and then after that my skin was perfect due to the increase in estrogen. Well I've been reading about the mini pill and it turns out that because it's only the one hormone, it's the same hormone in early pregnancy that can cause lots of women to break out. Looks like I'll be using condoms instead! Ugh! I really wish I could go in a BCP that has both hormones but I am not going to give up breast feeding.
I am taking the mini pill and my face broke out, but I was on my period also and I usually break out during that time. Other than that I notice a few zits here and there but I still have teenager hormones lol. Also, every woman has different reactions while taking birth control =)
