Can IUDs Give You Acne – How IUDs Affect Hormones and Skin

Okay, first, before you get all freaked out, you should know that IUDs are the shit. No, seriously. There’s a reason why they’re often the most-used and recommended form of birth control by doctors themselves: The little hormonal t-shaped device is 99.8-percent effective at preventing pregnancy (which is way, way, way more effective than the pill), it continues working 24/7 for anywhere from three to 10 years, depending on the kind you get, and it has virtually no user error. As my own gynecologist once told me, “IUDs are the best thing to happen to women since the invention of birth control.”
