I've been searching and searching for one around my area (and I live in one of the bigger cities in the U.K) and I finally found a guy who seems to be exactly what I am looking for. He has a legit website which claims he has worked with people with stubborn problems such as acne and p.c.o.s before and he seemed sound when I was e-mailing him. So fingers crossed. I am paying for this obv. but I am serious about this and my private medical consultations for roaccutane the second time around were t
I'm keeping this blog updated more for myself than anything else.
I think it's good to keep a track of where you are at and how you feel so that when you look back you can see how things really are.
So after months of gradual sucess on Vitex and Evening primrose oil, around the end of March Holland & Barrett changed the branding of the Agnus Castus (Vitex) and the dose was reduced massivley,(for reasons I won't go into again on here as I have ranted and raved about it enough) I wasn't i
I havn't posted on here for a while! So I have had a pretty notable success using these two in conjunction with eachother, I think AgnusCastus has been the most effective in helping keep me clear as I don't suffer with hardly any hormonal acne any more, I get maybe one/two around my time of month and then they subside and my skin has gotten clearer and clearer with each month I have been on it. Also my periods are a lot shorter and lighter maybe only lasting 3/4 days and not heavy at all. Anothe
I've lost count I'm over two months in though.
It cold be coincidence. It could be ... I dunno. But my skin is looking really great. I'm still clearing, I still have red marks and the odd blemish...some cysts still clearning. But I havn't been this clear in a long while. also my skin is smooooothh especially around my forehead/ cheekbones/cheeks.
I'll post a picture.
Pretty much...nothing. Agnus castus/Vitex did make me late on in the first month...I co
I hate being too positive and I hate getting excited and the past few days I've been really down and panicking about my skin (I don't know why?) but I've seen a big improvement.
My skin seems glowy and nice around my cheekbones and forehead. My cheeks stopped breaking out a while ago.
I do have a small cluster of cysts around my lower chin/jawline (about 4/5 small ones) on my right side (My right side has caused me the most grief. It always is this side that breaks out the worst ...anyone know
I think I pretty much started everything early/mid October..time really fliesss oh shitt so heres a pic update.
So I have been feeling really positive and like my skin has improved a lot but after taking pictures... I don't know now lol.
Sorry for the absoloute face of misery lol
So yeah.. I dunno,
I've had a hair cut since last time and I couldn't get the lighting exactly right on my camera/couldn't be ar!ed to faff around.
I have been doing this herbal supplement thing for three weeks all together now which is very early days but I want to log my progress as much as possible so that I can keep track of this.
One thing that I have noticed is that my acne seems a lot more...contained. This happened on accutane. My breakouts would be predominantly around my jawline and chin but they would spread about my cheeks and in the past I get spots on like...the very top side of my nose bridge ALWAYS in the same play like whe
I have been on:
Vitex/Agnus castus for 2 weeks.
Saw Palmetto for 9 days.
Primrose oil for 10 days.
Zinc for 10 days.
Omega 3 for a month.
I am also using Zineryt on my face (topical antbiotic - not sure how well it's working) and I am also drinking Peppermint tea as this is supposed to act as an anti-androgen.
Side effects wise I havn't really experienced anything. Skin is no worse ... definatley some improvment especially on my left side - right side relativley the s
Okay so this is me.
I came off my second course of accutane in May 2012.
My skin was perfect (my hair was ruined)
THIS IS ME EIGHT MONTHS AFTER COMING OFF ACCUTANE.
LOOK AT HOW HAPPY I AM.
This is me NOW (1 year 5 months after accutane)
This is the worst side...one side always gets worse than the other.
as you can see accutane DOES work but only for a limited amount of time. It doesn't do the job forever. I made no changes to my diet or lifestyle. My periods have always b
So basically after a lot of thinking and a lot of experience of prescribed meds and a lot of research (I'm still not done researching) I have decided to come off Metformin and try a more natural way of controlling my hormonal breakouts of acne that unfortunatly, come with having P.C.O.S
I have been on Metformin for over a month now and I'm not really sure how I feel about it.
To begin with I'm not really sure exactly why I was prescribed it. I understand it is supposed to regulate periods b
