How to treat hormonal acne with birth control?
While each individual response to hormonal medication is unique, many adults report positive effects, such as clear skin or reduced acne
, when taking combination birth control. Additionally, wisp's medical team can prescribe Doxycycline
to treat adult acne resulting from hormonal imbalance. If you are interested in doxycycline for treatment of hormonal acne, let the doctor know how many months you'd like to try it during the checkout questions* when you order birth control pills. *Doxycycline is currently available as an "add-on" only when buying birth control from wisp.

What are some common hormonal birth control side effects?
Many people need to try a few different types of birth control before they find one that works for their body. Nausea, bloating, weight gain, breast tenderness, and heavier periods are a few very common birth control side effects, especially in the first few months of beginning a new birth control pill. Try to stick it out and see if the side effects subside. If the side effects are severe or aren't going away, that's a sign you should try a different pill or method of birth control.

How does birth control prevent pregnancy?
Birth control pills prevent pregnancy by adjusting the levels of hormones in your body to prevent ovulation (the release of an egg by your ovaries). Combination birth control pills prevent ovulation using progestin and estrogen while the mini-pill only uses progestin (a form of progesterone). Order birth control pills from wisp for easy and affordable contraception.
