Does birth control make you break out?
Hello, I am a 20-year-old female. I am sexually active and ever since I started taking birth control pills I started having breakouts. I don’t exactly know why I started having breakouts out of blue but I think it’s because of birth control. Can anyone tell me does birth control makes you break out?
@willie Hello, generally birth control pills are used to treat acne. Most hormonal birth control contains estrogen and progestin. Different contraceptives use different types of progestin, and each type of progestin can affect your body differently. There are some contraceptive choices that can increase the chances of acne breakouts by containing a progestin that has an androgenic effect on your body. Consult your doctor.
