Getting off birth control & acne

Patient: Hello, I have been on birth control for five years (ocella) just for hormonal acne and it completely cleared. I am almost 21 now and have been getting wierd break outs around my chin, they must be hormonal. I want to try to get off birth control and see if my body needs it anymore. Could it be balancing out itself? Also, are there hormones in the last week of bc pills? How can I balance hormones without bc pills?

 

 

Symptoms: Hormonal acne around chin
