Hormone Imbalance??

Recommended Posts

So I'm 22, And I've been struggling on and off with acne since I was about 16.

For periods of up to a year I have had wonderful skin, and then randomly breakout. So I've been on and off antibiotics for the last couple of months and they have worked wonders until my face is just about all cleared up and I discontinue use.

Then all is good for a couple weeks off the antibiotics until I start having sex regularly. I've heard that sex does not cause acne but I'm wondering why I am breaking out?

I started again on the antibiotics and if I remember correctly they usually take up to about a month to really start showing effect.

I've never had a hormone test, but I am beginning to think that it could be the sex hormones causing the acne possibly?
