Brief Answer:
Usually, it doesn't cause acne.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us.

Morning after pill has NOT been shown to cause any serious or long-term health problems. Eventually, it DOESN'T cause acne, rather it helps to clear off.

However, acne-prone women may face this problem due to heavy dose of steroid. Use face wash and cleanser if you have acne problem.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.
