Do you provide birth control that can also help with acne?

Combined hormone birth control — birth control that contains both progestin and estrogen, such as the pill, the pitch, and the ring — can offer some protection against acne. Many women who do not need birth control often choose to take the pill, the patch, or the ring for the non-contraceptive benefits they offer. In addition to acne, combined hormone birth control can help prevent bone thinning, premenstrual symptoms like headaches and depression, heavy and/or irregular periods, and cancers of the uterus and ovaries. You can learn more about how to get birth control at your local Planned Parenthood health center.
