In brief: Hormones

This is one of the well-known side effects that some people experience.
Decide with your physician whether you want to try a different hormonal medication, or (more likely) want to use a 21st century treatment for the acne. A good starter is topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative. Good luck.
