Hi, when I first found out I was pregnant I was happy because my OBGYN told me that the medications I was on would not affect the baby. Then my psychiatrist told me otherwise... and at nearly 6 weeks I had to take the abortion pill. After a devastating 3 weeks (this will be by 4th week post-abortion), I have noticed that my skin has broken out terribly. I can guess this is probably hormonal related, but does anybody have any idea how long this bad acne will last? Will it eventually go away? It is leaving scars all over my face, chest and back, and I have enough emotional scarring to deal with right now as it is. Please, someone help me.

I'm so sorry. :(
