In brief: Yes

Talk to your doctor about the pros and cons (nothing is entirely without risks or side effects), and they can prescribe for you if you decide this is right for you.
If hormones aren't the right answer, there are other options for treating acne, unstable mood, cramps and other symptoms often relieved by birth control.
