Experience

I started taking this pill because I got a period on my previous pill and freaked out. I got a short period which I think was just withdrawal bleeding from a change in hormones. A week into it I got some spotting but that’s it. However a couple weeks in I started breaking out really bad and 5 weeks later it has progressed to mild acne that is extremely sensitive. However I am not sure if this is a side effect of this pill or an after effect of my previous pill.
