For years, I've had trouble finding the right birth control pill and my search will continue. This particular pill made me extremely oily. I used to be able to go a few days without washing my hair and since being on this pill the grease has decided to unpack and stay awhile. It is horrible. Not only my hair, but my face has just produced so much oil lately it is insane. My skin is usuall ... Show Full Comment
