Norlevo induced acne :(


Q: Hi I am an eighteen year old female and have taken the ECP Norlevo a few times since December of last year and have developed the worst acne I've ever had as a result (I've always been practically acne free up until recently) I'm convinced that this is because the pills I have taken three times now, which contained 1.5mg of levonorgestrel, have thrown my hormones off. My question is what kind of hormone imbalance would this be classified as since I'm looking into some supplements to fix the situation. I do not want to go on birth control at all because I feel as though I should let my hormones figure themselves out. Thanks very much for your advice.
