I am on Nuvaring right now.  It helps with my skin but not as much as Lybrel did.

I take Ocella (generic for Yasmin, different than Yaz). Keeps my skin pretty clear (one or two blemishes around the jawline right before my period). No really severe side effects, but I think it has kind of killed my libido.

I’m on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo and it has helped to keep my skin under control.  I’ve always had acne problems and they aren’t completely resolved, even on BC, but it is certainly better thank without.  I’ve never had any negative side effects.

I’m on Gianvi…it’s a generic for Yaz. It has really helped my acne. I only get a bump or two every now and then…and it almost completely covered my jawline ALL the time before.

I’m on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo like meladoug, and while I haven’t had any side effects (I hoped that I would have the boob-growing side effect, but no such luck :P), I haven’t had any improvement in my acne. I don’t think it’s the pill though, I think my body just doesn’t respond to it like others’ do. I also have a history of stubborn acne in my family, so I don’t think that birth control is enough. Maybe accutane will work? That’s my only option left :P.

I’m in New Zealand and I was on Ginet 84, which was called Estelle.  It did a good job with the acne but kinda killed my sex drive.

I was on Estrostep FE for acne control it worked like a charm! I just switched last month to try a super low hormone pill and am starting to break out again, might go back.

I’m on Diane 35 (not sure if there is a different name for it outside Australia). I feel that it really did help my acne, I still have it, but it is so, so much better. I’ve been on it for 5ish years now and haven’t had any problems.
