Lizinna pill - Combined Pill

Having previously been on the mini-pill Cerazette for a few years I was having a continuous issue with cystic acne. After topical creams and antibiotics not working I decided to change pill and I was prescribed Lizzinna. At first, my skin did start to clear up and my acne was nothing like it was before but the breast pain/enlargement that came with it was just unbareable. I’ve stuck at this pill for 2 months now hoping this side effect would wear off but it’s still agony just to take my bra off at the end of the day. Im also really really struggling to lose any weight and my weight has actually gone up since I started this pill, even though I’ve been eating well and exercising regularly. With any other pill I’ve been on, losing weight was never an issue so I don’t think this is a coincidence. My skin is not as clear as it was when I first started this one either so looking for other recommendations now.
