    I know that contraceptive pill can cure acnes for some women. It is recommended for those
    who may also want to control birth. I am wondering if women who have never had sex can use the pills for acne treatment too?


    @v4wanndii Yes, women who have never had sex or who don’t have penis-in-vagina sex may sometimes be prescribed The Pill to treat acne or other hormonal issues like irregular periods or PMS. That said, not all acne responds to The Pill & The Pill isn’t right for all women. Talk to your doctor or visit a Family Planning Clinic or women’s health centre for advice that’s right for you.
