Does Family Planning have a birth control option that’s specifically for helping acne?

Question: The birth control I’ve been taking (LoSeasonique) has been breaking me out pretty badly. Does Family Planning have a birth control option that’s specifically for helping acne?

Answer:  Many oral contraceptive pills can help with managing acne.  We would suggest talking to the physician that prescribed the medication to you about your concerns and consider changing the dosage or the brand to one that will meet your needs – including the skin concerns.  If this does not help, the next step would be to contact a dermatologist who may be able to make better recommendations.  If you would like to come to Family Planning to talk about switching your birth control brand/ method, please call 440-352-0608 for Painesville, or 440-992-5953 for Ashtabula to make an appointment and answer some questions!
