I've had moderate acne since puberty. 6 years ago I went on the BCP Tri-cyclin and found (after 6 months of slight weight gain) that my acne cleared up quite well, and my weight is back to normal. I also go to the acne clinic to get Benzel Peroxide Rx, and cortisone shots for the BIG cyst-type zits I get every few months. Generally it's under control.

I made the mistake of trying Alesse recently for a few months and my acne was horrible!! So I quickly went back to my tri-cyclin and "boop"...gained a couple extra pounds again.

Anyhoo, my issue is this:

My acne is definately hormone related and I doubt I'll ever clear up without the BCP. If one day I want to go off the pill to TTC, what products are out there that are safe to use? I've done some reading on the net about it, but wanted to hear some real experiences if I could.

Can you use AHA (Alpha Hydroxy) products while pregnant?? :pray:

Anyone??

Are you pregnant? I'd ask an obstetrician or a pharmacist.
