A: We all know that the pill can help some girls with acne, but most IUDs aren’t prescribed for that reason. Plus, we all react a little differently to different birth control options. If clearing up acne is a big concern of yours, be sure to let your doctor know that when you’re choosing a birth control option. If you do choose an IUD and see an increase in acne, don’t panic. Let your doctor know what’s going on and she can help you decide what to do next.
