Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. There is no one best birth control for acne. Some progesterone may make it worse, but the pill you are on should be fine. Its important to take the pill continuously with no break, and not to have a period every month. This will make the acne worse.
