i was put on this type of birh control because i have horrible periods. I am entering my 3rd month, so no period yet. But I am getting acne, not the normal pimple here and there, but on my kneck/face line. And it won't clear up. errrg. Same pimple for 2 weeks! yuck. Also its made me gassy. GasX is my new best friend. Love no period for 3 months...but thinking of going back to the ring.
