    I don't think your pill is causing your spots, it is probably more likely that the pill you were on was calming your spots down and this one isn't. If you don't like it, talk to your GP. :)

    The pill that's good for acne is called Dianette. Bumblebee is right that some pills will calm down spots and then when you change you notice the difference. Go back to your GP.

    Marvelon is good for calming down spots as well. Microgynon made me come out in acne though, but give it the 3 months trial, things may calm down in that time, but if it's still the same after that then tell them and ask to change to a pill that s good for clearing acne.

    re: acne

    Hi I use aloe vera products, which seem to help my acne, what I have found is the one in health shops don't seem to be that effective compare to the ones I use, which I get online.
