  1. Hi Ladies, I was wondering if anyone is on Flutamide(anti androgen) for acne? I know that it works great on the skin oilyness,hirsutism and hairloss. but I'vent heard anything about acne except for couple of studies comparing Flutamide to spiro. and how effective flutamide is. I'm looking for real life experience as you know most of these research articles are based on 3 to 6 month trials. I'm already experiencing hairloss as I have come off bcps and I know spiro wouldn't be any help in this ar
  2. Hi ladies, I need you help I'm debating on sprio or Androcure(cyproterone acetate). I have severe acne and for many years I was on Accutane .about 9 months a go I started diane 35 but I had to stop it after only one month.I had adverse reaction to the pill. now after six month I had to go back on accutane since I developed cyctic acne thanks to Diane I was happy that finally my acne is getting better but hair started to shed.my derm told me that was because of BCP that I took and it will slow
  3. Hi, I just wanna say good luck,it would be miracle if your acne doesnt come back. specially after stopping yasmin. I would say your acne would come back even worse than before.you would be lucky if you dont get hairloss after stopping it. the problemwith bcp specially yasmin with higher estrogen and anti androgen in it is that your body get use to themsoyou wontmakeany hormones by yourself. once you stop the pill it will take long time for the hormones to go back the way they should be. I dont w

Hi, I know exactly how you feel trust me I've been there.I took 3 courses of accutane in over 10 years each time with great success but after couple of months the acne and oliyness came back. after 3 times of unsucessful tries and really I tried everythingelsfrom bcps to antibiotics to minocylcin nothing works as soon I stopped them.so I kept my slef on maintenance dose 20mg every 2 weeks after my 3red course of acutane.well it worked for me 7 years with nice clear skin. then I realized I was on

  8. Hi Ladies, Has any of you tired natural remedy in order to regulate your hormones? we have a family friend in France,he is a natrupath, just recenty told me to try a herb called sage (Salvia officinalis) it basically works like BCP ,high in phytoestrogen and can correct the ratio of estrogen to progesterone. I just started Accutane again,I would wait for six months and start the herb to see if it really works. meanwhile does anyone know anything about this herb? thanks

  12. hair shedding is usually common with spiro stick to it for 3 months if it doesnt get better thne u r allergic to anti androgen I had the same problem with Yaz which had spiro in it.what ever anti androgen I use I have some allergic reaction and my hair starts to fall out.

  13. I dont think you blood test would come out accurate since you are on Bcp.which brand are using right now? the tests you should ask for are LH and FSH PROGESTERONE, ESTRADIOL TESTOSTERONE DHEAS PROLACTIN the best time for your blood test is on the 3rd day ofyou cycle.the main thing with pcos is ratio of LH to FSH which has to be1:1 all I can say is that these blood tests are useless I have done bout 6 times nothing showed up. I have some excess hair but it's not that much.before the test my End
  14. Really don't take it the wrong way but im actually excited....excited that you got to the root of your problem......Im glad at least someone did. i spend countless hours on the net trying to figure out if im estrogen dominant which i think is the same this as what you said you were diagnosed with. What led you go get to this? Im interested this because. one i find it to be very hard to get a dr to even take steps further for hormonal explanations for acne. like who did you go to a gyno, and e
