I have been dealing with hormonal acne since I was 17years old. (I'm now 30) and the only time my acne cleared completely and I had not to worry about what I eat or use any special acne medication was during my three pregnancies. (It happened each time) And I stayed clear for a few months after giving birth until my hormones went back to normal ;(
So if I was you I wouldn't stress myself to much because if you are dealing with a hormonal imbalance now there is a good chance that your hormones will balance out during pregnancy.
I know everyones body works different but maybe this will help you not to be so afraid of being pregnant and dealing with acne. I wish you all the best xoxo
PS:Sorry for my English. It's my second language.
Thanks! That actually DOES make me feel a little better. I still think I'll break out, but just the possibility makes me look forward.
It makes me so sad to see that severe acne would prevent anyone from having children. I'm not judging, believe me. It makes me sad because I can see myself possibly making the same decision.
Thanks for your understanding! How are your conception efforts going?
I actually haven't stopped taking the birth control or gone off Estro Sense yet. I'm too nervous. But I spoke to my husband last night. I will go on my last month of birth control and Estro Sense, and then that's it. I told him how scared I was that I'll break out and look like a pizza face. But he was really sweet, and told me that he doesn't care. He said that if I was carrying his baby he would probably even love me more than he does now, and that breakouts surely won't do a thing to change that. And he said if I breakout, he promises to breakout too. Hehe.
So... one more month to go, and I'm diving in!!!
I'm still nervous, but I'll just deal with it. Any parting words?
