LADIES, do you notice any pattern to when you breakout during your cycle?

I seem to break out worse 2 to 1 week prior to my period. And I notice my breakouts are fewer from about the last day of my period to 2 days afterwards.

Does anyone know why this is? In other words, is some hormone at its highest or lowest at these times?

I get gigantic inflamed painful pimples about 2 days before I ovulate.

Right before my period I don't get many..if any at all.

Ovulation is was gets me.

Chin acne = hormonal acne.

Yes, hormonal acne flare ups are sometimes controlled by birth control pills, like Yasmin. Some have reported that it made a huge difference. I, for one, can attest to this. I was on Ortho Tricylen (sp?) for a few years, and it helped decrease my oil and with painful cystic acne. I am not on BCP anymore since we are trying to have a baby. I would definitely go back on the pill after baby (crossing fingers!).
