You have probably heard that being on the birth control pill can help control some skin problems such as acne. Some studies show that a low-dose birth control pill can be effective for reducing breakouts because it balances hormone levels. However, people should also be informed of the side effects and health risks related to the birth control pill.
Although lower doses of estrogen are used in today’s birth control pills, thus minimizing side effects, there are still health risks to be aware of.
It is your personal choice to take the pill or not. However, just keep in mind there are many other natural contraceptives that might be better alternatives for you!
