(Closed) did you break out when you stopped taking your birth control?

I stopped taking BC about 3 months ago, and I didn’t notice a change in break outs. I had relatively good skin, with only a break out or two here and there, right before my period. And it’s stayed the same since going off birth control (after 12 years).

If you do notice a bit of an increase, make a point to keep your hands from your face. Part of the problem is that we often rest our cheeks or chin on our hands, or we constantly play around with our faces without realizing it. And sometimes, that deposits dirt and grime onto your skin.

I’ve been on and off birth control, and I’ve never had many breakouts. I might have had like one extra zit when I came off of it in high school. I think a lot of times if you’ve always had clear skin you’ll transition more easily.
