Lots of tags but rest assured I don't use all those at the same time xD

I have contracted PCOS (polycystic ovaries syndrome) and it has taken a toll on my health and appearance. I was losing weight and have been shedding hair, I had a couple of spots of my face but I foolishly chose to ignore the signs and muscle through my new job which I love but it's very challenging and costs me lots of stress and lack of sleep. A couple of months later I got the worse cramps ever it feels like someone was eating my thorso and I broke out pretty bad in closed comedones! It all took a toll on my self-esteem, I remember feeling my cheek and it was as rough as gritty sandpaper.

I decided to take a break from work and get treated, my doctor told me it's the hormones but couldnt put me on the pill yet cause I was on my period around that time. She instead prescribed me minocin and some other pain killers and hemostan to help with my cramps. I think the minocin worked great! After 3 days my acne calmed down tremendously It has given me hope! I also scrub my face once or twice a week (tho first week I used it almost every day cause I swear I had more dead skin my face than on my foot!) with sugar mixed with physiogel cleanser and I also use their brand moisturizer (cetaphil didnt work for me, weird...), witch hazel and benzoyl peroxide tho while a lot less inflamed i still had clogged pores. I am now on the journey to treat those.

I can really tell my sebum production has gone craycray, i could scrape it off the sides of my nose even though my nose is relatively clear @-@ my doc is so hard to get to, I have a ppointment this sunday I was hoping she could prescribe me my birth control pills now but I doubt it since I just got my period again early *sigh*. I read garlic is a good hormone regulator so I tried eating a couple of raw cloves a day and to my delight my skin has been looking and feeling better (I also feel a lot better) , it couldnt hurt right? I'm now struggling with acne scars (not deep ones, just discoloration really) and clogged pores. Tips and suggestion for those would be much appreciated! I'm leaning towards natural method cause products, unless really popular, is hard to get by here. Would be posting pics or progress soon.
