I just switched my b.C from ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) to chateal due to insurance purposes and i liked ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) cus it helped with my acne. Will chateal work just as well?

In brief: Maybe.

The hormonal control exhibited by these meds is variable among patients.
I suggest you give it a try, and consider changing if the acne returns.
