I am similarly suffering. At 28, I'm too old for
this crap. After being on the Ortho Cyclen
10 years straight, I decided to get off it. I had a no-hormone IUD put in and for the 1st month to month and half everything was fine. Then it was terrible... little bumps everywhere, terribly dry skin (after always having been oily), painful cystic acne, it was like my whole face hurt, and im sure my winner status as a picker didn't help. And it isn't just my face... back, scalp, ears, neck.
