What can I do if I'm on the pill and breaking out with acne?
updated over 3 years ago

Most pills actually help with acne, so you could talk to provider to see about switching to another kind of pill.

Still not working?

If you try another type of pill and it doesn’t help, you could also switch to another hormonal method, such as the ring, the shot, the implant, or an IUD. Or, you could switch to a non-hormonal method like male condoms or female condoms.

Try a different method
