I ve recently been put on the BCP Marvelon 21 to help with my acne which I have suffered with for years. I was also given duac cream to try alongside it. I ve just finished my first strip of pills but my skin is ten times worse than it was before, I'm breaking out every day and it's completely knocked my confidence again. I hate looking in the mirror or even leaving the house. The duac cream helps to dry the spots out but I'm pretty sure the Marvelon is just counteracting it by causing them?

I just wondered if anyone has had any success with this BCP and clearing up acne? Is it a case of it gets worse before it gets better, as the body adjusts?

I would be very grateful for any advice/insight, thank you!
