I'm only taking this during breastfeeding. My skin is breaking out...all over. No periods in the 7 months since I had my baby - not even spotting.

I had to switch to this pill, because I was over 35 and a smoker. The first year was great, but had minor breakouts on my face & shoulders, which went away after a few months.
