Ortho Tri-Cyclen for ACNE
The FDA just approved using Ortho Tri-Cyclen for ACNE. This is the first birth control pill to be officially approved for a noncontraceptive use.
We've known for years that oral contraceptives often improve acne in young women. Estrogen helps by lowering androgen levels.
But some pills might work better than others...depending on their PROGESTIN component.
