Hormonal acne advice?

Hi there superstars!

I've been suffering from hormonal related acne since...since I've started having my menstruation. It got better when I became more conscious with my hygiene but it still persists. I would always have those irritating small dot-like pimples and lots of blackheads and whiteheads.

My OB recommended that I take Yasmin/Diane 35 but I am hesitant because not only do these have negative effect but also I've heard that once you're not on them, the acne would come back big time. Also, I am currently a graduate school student so I don't think I can bear suffering from the negative side effects of those pills from the nausea and emotional depression.

My skin has always been the source of my insecurity. I was grade 5 when I've had lots of them on my forehead. I still remember my teacher one time during class, embarrassed me in front of the class by asking, "why do you have so many pimples?". I did not know what to answer back then. I just felt so small... :(

Please help me. I am so desperate. I too want to have a clear skin. :(
