minerva contraception
Hi, i am a 20 year female and am currently taking minerva contraception pills, but not for contraception reasons. the pills were prescribed by a dermatologist to treat my acne problem due to myvery oily skin. I have been on the pill for about 2 years now and it has been very efficient at decreasing the oilyness of skin and has tremendously helped with the acne, however i am concerned about the long term effects and will it affect reproduction later? your feedback will be appreciated. Could your response pls be directed to the email address specified.
Thanking you

I cannot reply to private e-mails. The Pill will not affect your longterm fertility and it is safe to use long term.
