Polycystic Ovary Syndrome And Accutane

I'm 24, and because of my PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome), for the past 8 years I've been taking birth control pills regularly, with the 1-week pauses every month. I never stopped taking it. I started with Mercilon and for the past year I've been on Dianette to see better results for the acne.
Unfortunately both pills improved it by only 30%.
So now I've been on Accutane for 4 months, along with the bc pills.

I heard that Accutane is not very effective if someone has PCOS, and that the acne can come back a few years after the treatment is over. I don't know if these people ever treated pcos though.

But I could never find out if it's effective when [u]someone has PCOS but has been treating it with bc pills for years, and never stopped taking them during nor after finishing Accutane.[/u]
In my case, do you guys think the acne can recur years after Accutane?

Thx! [img][/img]
