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.

Comment:
My doctor recommended that I take this not only for birth control but because of my severe migranes. I was previously on Yasmin. I am very happy with the fact that I only get a migrane 4 times a year instead of every month. I have noticed more pimples but I thought that might have been stress (just got married). Now that I read the other articles, I can honestly say it is because of the pills. Th ... Show Full Comment
