Do Birth Control Pills Affect Acne?
I started breaking out about 2 years ago when I was 24. I never had skin problems before that. I have been taking Yaz birth control for about three and a half months now.
I had a lot of clogged pores that would become larger zits. The first 2-3 months on Yaz those clogged pores broke out all over and it was horrible. Now it seems to be clearer, but I am still breaking out somewhat.
Yes, birth control pill usually positively affects acne
Acne is a very complex condition
