Majorly spotty all of a sudden

    I'm on Microgynon and it's majorly ruined my skin. I look awful and my self esteem has taken a major hit. It's not just on my face either, I have awful spots on my chest and back. I don't really have any other side effects other than this, so, is it likely they'll change me on to another pill? Or be like ''it's just spots, get over it.''

    Yes, you'll probably go on Lymecycline or Minocycline and then Roaccutane (the apparent 'miracle' drug for acne). Do a forum search for Roaccutane if you want more detailed information, there has been quite a few threads on it.
