ok i just wanted to find out about this

when we were ttc for morgan i used to get zits just under the corner of my mouth during my cycle. the would disapear during af.
when im on bcp my skin is sooo clear!
today i woke up with this, this morning... the funny thing is. im on the patch?! could this mean that maybe my patch isnt working? could it just be that these hormones are different to birth control pills?

im not to concerned about getting pregnant while on the contraceptive because i need clomid to get pg! lol, it just baffles me that the patch allowing what usually happens in an unprotected month to happen while protected.

anyone get ovulation acne and can use it as a form of NFP? i was thinking of adding that to my note when i start NFP to see if it coincides with my O

I always had acne around ovulation time. It was before I even charted or knew about NFP but I remember I always broke out about 2 weeks before my period.
Thank you Natasha for the beautiful siggy!

Acne can be a reaction to hormones, doesn't matter if they are your natural hormones or synthetic hormones in a contraceptive. I wouldn't rely on the acne as confirmation of ovulation though.
