... 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)
... There is no way to tell if a certain pill will cause the undesireable side effects. You just have to try it. ALso, there is a difference between true depression and the standard moodiness that the pill can cause. Just make sure you aren't confusing the two. General moodiness isn't a great reason to switch pills, when you aren't experiencing any other side effects. (5 replies)

... Hi I was on Alesse for a little over a year. It was a pretty good pill as far as side effects go. The only problem was that it gave me hormonal cystic acne. ... (4 replies)
... Yup, a year & a half ago I went on Alesse to calm my cramps & it didn't do that much actually-pain was better & shorter, but not that much better. But I did gain some weight, and it was all in my chest, I grew a size & also an inch around the waist. Alesse failed me when I missed 4 pills in one week & I had my period for 2 months straight, so I switched to Yasmin & LOVED... (8 replies)
... Cylen for 3 years. I loved that it cleared my acne totally. But I also, like you, had terrible mood swings and depression. I have been on Alesse for a year now and I have no side affects like weight gain, bloating or moodiness. It hasn't helped my skin though like I heard that it is supposed to. ... (5 replies)
... Alesse made my skin SO horrible I can't even describe. I never had an acne problem until I began taking Alesse. ... (10 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)
... I don't know if Alesse is lower than Yasmin. I think Alesse might be lower. I think Yasmin is like 25 mcg and Alesse is 20. ... (9 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. ...

... I've been taking Alesse for nearly a year now. ... (8 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)
