Sorry to hear youre skins driving you crazy i know exactly how you feel having it imporve then bam one morning youre back to square one. Youre a very attractive girl and youre acnes not bad at all. I say sod u acne! Hope that goes well for you.
Thanks for kind words!
You're probably breaking out around ovulation. I break out around ovulation like clockwork every month! I would try the BCP, but we are trying to conceive, so for now I'm stuck with the zits. You can take Midol for the few days around ovulation - it's supposed to reduce acne by reducing inflammation. I tried it last month and it did work!
Good luck on the pill!
Oh yes, it is very likely... 2-3 weeks past having my period, very punctually inflammed acne appears to ruin my skin for the rest of the month.
I don't think they sell Midol here in Sweden, but maybe there are similar alternatives, do you know what is the active component in Midol?
Sorry to hear that you are not seeing results. Based on your photos, your skin seems to be improving. Have you tried saw palmetto? I'm taking it as a last resort and to avoid BCP, and I'm gradually seeing results. To me, it's not worth the risks of taking BCP. You can't be on birth control for the rest of your life, and at some point the acne will return when you get off it, and maybe it will be even worse. So, if you are already hesitant to take BCP, I would recommend you look into some herbal remedies that will not mess with your overall health.
In the last pictures it really started to look much better, but now it went to shit again. I read about saw palmetto some time ago, it seems to have very good reviews. I actually ordered it from an online vitamin shop just to try. We'll see how it go
I don't want to take bcp either... It didn't do me well the last time I was on Belara. I will talk to the gynecologist and see what she'll say (though I hate how quick and reckless they are to put you on some harmfull treatment! Just wanting to get you off their back). I highly suspect that I have PCOS too, due to all the weird symptoms. If this gynecologist will not show engagement into my problems, I think I will go to some private centrum...
