Milia after stopping the Pill

I decided to stop taking the pill and exactly after a week all these tiny bump showed up on my face. They're not acne but are skin colored, none irritated bumps on my forehead, chin, and cheeks. From some research I believe it may be milia.
I decided to start the pill again because I desperately want them to go away, but am wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if it is more likely that it is a coincidence or something.
For reference I have been on the pill for almost 7 years.

Welcome to this forum.
Oral contraceptives are often used to treat scenes as sometimes those are hormone dependent and responds very well after applying pills. So, this is not a coincidence but will usually be off after few months provided you do not have any other hormonal disorders like polycystic ovaries inside you. So, either you can restart the pills or can opt for a consultation definitely to search any basic problem inside you.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
