In brief: Yes with PCOS
Pcos with infrequent ovulation also has an increase in the male hormone, testosterone.
This causes an increase in oily secretions and more acne. Acne can range from very mild to the deep cystic kind. If you are not trying to conceive, birth control pills can help lower the testosterone and the acne.
