On My Way To Clear!

Hey everyone gonna try make this as short as possible but it is a time span of about 8 years. So my acne started when I gotpregnant, not just a little bit but I'm talking severe cystic acne on my face and back. My skin was perfect before this so I was absolutely devastated.Gave birth nursed my son for two months but could not handle how my skin looked any longer so decided to go back on birth control to help it stop. Went on yaz and my skin once again turned beautiful. Got pregnant again 2 years later and same thing happened, got severe cystic acne! Gave birth went on diane 35 and beautiful skin once again. I suffered with severe migraine head aches as well. I stayed on the bc pill for the next 4 years until my headaches were so horribly debilitating that I could hardly get out of bed. Went to a migraine clinic and the dr told me that one of the side effects of that pill i's head aches and that asl the research he had done said that I should have not ben on that pill for more than a year! He told me there i's a higher risk of blood clots and that I should stop taking it immediately! I did and magically my headaches disappeared. What a relief until my acne came back with a vengeance! I vowed to try heal my body from the acne naturally which has been a huge struggle, I have tried probiotics, hormone balancers, vitex, gluten free diets, no sugar, every cream and magic potion available, yeast free diets, drinking clay, yup you read that right, it takes the bad stuff outta your gut supposedly. All of these things did help but none of them took it away completely. I still have a couple of deep cysts on my cheeks and pustules on my chinwhich i's way better than it used to be but not the result I'm looking for. I want acne free skin period! So I have ben going for laser treatments for the past there months twice a month which has really helped with tje redness and scarring but still having breakouts. So I decided I will go for tje accutane, it i's my last resort but I would pretty much drink bleach if I thought it would cure me . So this i's my second day on 20 mg of accutane. Get the odd pain in my stomach but besides that nothing really. Sorry it took so long to spit that out but thought out would be best incase someone else had a story like mine. Hope this acutane thing works, will keep you posted! I will try sdfd photos but am having a hard time.
