I’m a 20 year old female who recently had her

Patient: I’m a 20 year old female who recently had her birth control switched.Should I expect different side effects from the birth control brand Chateal if I did not have negative side effects with the brand Portia? They both have the same dosages of ETHINYL ESTRADIOL (0.03 mg) and LEVONORGESTREL (0.15 mg) but different inactive ingredients. I am 3 pills into a new pack of Chateal and I am wondering if it will give me acne or cause weight gain.
