Ask your doctor...: Why did you start taking high-androgen birth control? For real birth control or acne? For whatever, always ask your prescribing doctor for possible adjusting drug dose; in fact, s/he should know more about you individual conditions than anyone online. Online sporadic opinion may further confusion leading more unwanted anxiety and fear. Best wish...
