I've started getting acne ever since i started yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). I'm now on my second month, would it clear up? The pimples are mainly around my chin area.

In brief: Stock with it

Try to stick with it for one mor full cycle.
It takes 3 cycles for your body to adjust to the hormonal changes. Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is often prescribed for people with acne to help because of the kind of Progesterone it has and the way it works. Your acne should clear up as your hormones even out and become balanced again.
