I'm almost 29, have 2 kids...and I'm considering starting the contraceptive pill.
I've never liked the idea of the pill (or anything hormone related) but I'm at my wits end. I had a cyst on my ovary in October (benign, resolved on it's own) however my skin (chin and jaw) has been horrible since then and seems to be getting worse. I have so many pimples and nothing I use helps at all.
I've always had problem skin but never like this. Nothing has ever really worked, Proactiv worked for years until the last few months.
I'm willing to try the pill as I've heard it helps clear this sort of hormonal acne but I'm a smoker (5-10 per day) and I've heard it's dangerous to take the pill while smoking?
Yes, yes I know I should give up but I am nowhere near ready to yet. So are there any smokers here that take the pill?
