    It's really different for each person. You may, you may not. However, if you do then you may want to switch to another method of contraception that may work better for you or you may just want to get acne treatment. Discuss it with your doctor and they'll be able to advise you better. Good luck!

    I was prescribed the pill after I finished my course of roacutanne to keep my acne away afterwards so it depends what pill you take

    I've been on the POP pill Cerazette for years and never noticed an increase in spots. Every month though before a bleed I always get a spot under my nose like I used to get before my period without being on the pill and that's the only kind of spots I've ever had. Every girl reacts differently to the pill but the pill can sometimes be use to prevent or control acne but it might be trial and error until you find a pill that works for you overall.
