hormone question

Recommended Posts

What would cause someone who has had acne for 17 years to stop getting acne ALTOGETHER during the entire course of a pregnancy and breastfeeding only for it to return shortly afterwards? I thought the obvious answer was hormones but birthcontrol doesn't seem to work too well for me and all my hormone levels came back normal? Can anyone help me figure this out? I think it's the key for solving my acne problem? Please anyone :wall:

Do you know what your hormone levels were? Sometimes the lab's normal isn't what ome DR' consider normal.

My doctor quickly looked at the report...said yes everything is normal and put the sheet away...I never had a chance to look myself. Do you think I should see a "hormone" specialist?

I would suggest an endocrinologist. Just because you are "normal" doesnt mean you are not overly sensitive to hormones and that is not the cause..or one of the causes.
