6 Month Accutane Journey Complete

Hey Everyone,

So its been some time since I posted last, been too busy sorry. Lots has happened. Not sure where to begin but here it goes. I found out by my new family doctor I have poly cystic ovaries, which is a contributing factor and probably the main cause to my acne. I was worried when I saw her because it was the middle of month 5 and I was still breaking out with a few pimples and also my menstrual cycle was all crazy. She told me I should be on birth control as treatment for the polycysitc ovaries and to help with the acne after accutane, my dermatologist agreed. I cant say that I am thrilled with the outcome of accutane because I was hoping I would be acne free, but I am glad its not the way it once was. I wish they had found the cause of my acne before because really I should have been on birth control before the accutane, though im glad they found it.

Here is my final result of accutane

Goodluck to everyone on accutane! Cheers!

Hi, how did you get diagnosed with polycystic ovaries? Ultrasound, blood test, physical examination? I assume the family doctor was not dermatologist, but why would he check for pros? I am just thinking if I have it how do I ask and who do be checked for it. Your results are looking great! Beautiful face! Good luck with birth control treatment!:)
