I have been on Tri Sprintec for a little over 2 weeks now and I believe it is causing me to have terrible acne. I never had bad acne before I went on the pill and when I began taking it, I started breaking out badly and the acne is painful. I'm going to stop taking it and see if that fixes the problem but I want to know if it's common to break out because of birth control since it's so often used to cancel the effects of acne. Thank You for your time.

For some women, yes, it can cause acne. Hormonal contraceptives can disrupt the normal hormones in the body causing reactions such as acne. You may want to try to switch to another hormonal contraceptive. If you get similar problems, you may just have issues with them and want to stick to non-hormonal contraceptives, like condoms.
