Acne and alesse
Nov 17, 2012
... Then my mom came to visit me here and I showed her how my skin was going crazy. I thought maybe it was from smoking so I quit but that didn't seem to help. ... (0 replies)
... I've never been on Alesse. However, I have read that it's very androgenous and not good for the skin. I would try something like Femcon FE (used to be called Ovcon 35) or Brevicon instead if I were you. I've been on Ovcon and Brevicon and they weren't bad on my skin. (2 replies)

Since reading all of these boards Im becoming more and... (2 replies)

... Not all pills are good for the skin or hair. In general, pills with a higher androgen index, like Alesse, aren't good for the skin or the hair. Androgens are male hormones and some women don't do well with them at all. ... (2 replies)
... I thought the pill was supposed to get RID of acne! I've been on alesse for about 9 days now, and my acne is getting worse.

... It is effective after 7 days of perfect use. Many professionals say that it takes a month to become effective so that the woman gets used to taking the pill regularly before relying solely on it for pregnancy protection. This is explained in your package insert that came with your pills. It can take several cycles for your periods and cramps to lighten. Most women find... (2 replies)
... Someone told me the BC Pill is effective after 14 days of use. I had thought it was after one full pack of pills. Can anyone clarify? Also - How long before the (hopefully) positive effects of the pill begin, such as less cramping, lighter periods, clearer skin, etc??? I realize these may NOT occur, but if they do - about how long does it usually take? Thank you very... (2 replies)

... acne, there is no way to tell for sure since you're using ProActive. The ProActive could be the culprit that's aggravating your skin, or it could be the pill. Alesse isn't approved by the FDA for treatment of acne, but all brands of birth control have the potential to treat acne. Again, consult with your physician. ... (3 replies)
... but I am not so sure since I also started using Proactive Solution, so I thought maybe that may be causing the outbreaks really bad, since they told me that my skin will get worse before it gets better. I am still holding out to see if it starts to clear up with the Alesse. I read somewhere that it is suppose to help acne. ... (3 replies)

... specifically in the skin and sex dept. ... (3 replies)
... ng. I got breakouts ALL over my back and chest too from Alesse. And I totally know what you mean about your back hurting from the breakouts. I think it's because Alesse has androgens or something in it and I guess it makes some people's skin good but other's really bad. So glad I got off of it. I feel so sick to my stomach. ...
