  1. okay, so I've been away on holiday in spain and then just been catching up on everything since I got back. I decided to go ahead and take what he had mixed for me anyway despite not knowing what was in it, bit of a risk but I think I was just at my wits end....whilst I was away my skin miracurasly cleared however I know the sun is very beneficial to skin and so just attributed it to that and enjoyed the fact that my skin was doing so well. my naturopath mailed me back whilst i was away and I dis
  2. Thank you Brenmc, is it on the 'inositols impact on hormonal acne' thread? I'll check it out. I was the same, only my acne worsened as soon as I went on the pill. The pill gave me my first experience of cystic acne (joy). DIM...so basically, I started taking it (Natures Way) after reading all these rave reviews and also at a time when i was really suffering with my acne...but DIM was just another thing i added into my supplement regime along with vitex again, EPO, zinc, vitamin a, fish oil,then
  3. god all sorts. when i was really young and got bad skin on my shoulders i used to self harm pretty bad and scratch at it with the compass out of my pencil case because i thought when it healed it would heal as new skin, daft i know. a girl i work with recently decided to tell me that she doesn't think my skin is that bad, its just that i have 'a lot of scarring' which is a back-handed compliment if i ever heard one, plus i really didnt think i had any scarring, and since she said that it's made

  5. Yeah accutane made me clear for the first time since I was around 12/13 and it was crazy how good it made me feel. I actually forgot what it was like to have acne until it returned about a year after being on accutane. A lot of people take having clear skin for granted where as it's something pretty much everyone on this site would trade almost anything for. Turn0ver that's beautifully written, thank you for sharing. I strongly believe that the emotional scars of acne run deeper than anything
  6. Hello Everyone! So most of you will be aware that the diagnosis for Polycystic Ovaries can be confusing and depends on a lot of symptoms (which may not all be present) and factors (such as which Doctor you see) etc. For example, I was diagnosed over a year ago because my blood tests showed that my testosterone levels were too high and my periods were very irregular (and I suffer with acne which was my biggest/main concern) however when I had my ultrasound there was only one small cyst which
  7. I had two weeks on holiday which i just returned from on Sunday and despite having a great time it wa really good for me to get time away and step back from obsessing about my skin, my regime, my supplements, and falling into the pit of anxiety and depression i was heading into. It also made me remember who I was/still am underneath all the anxiety and worry caused by my acne. I used to paint!! All the time. I used to blog and take a lot of photographs and research photographers and read
  8. Thank you very much for your responses. I really appreciate the feedback as nobody else I know has experienced this before.
  9. Last week I went to see a herbal medicalist and discussed everything I've been through/on for my skin and where I have had success etc. He seemed quite keen on focusing on the emotional aspects of things and seeing where my 'drive' was and how acne has stopped me in the past, which is good i guess. I know having a positive strong mindset is good for clear skin...but i won't have that until i HAVE clear skin so. I can't see much change on that yet. He gave me more liquid agnus castus and then a s
  10. a lot of people have success on dim. Can I ask, what brand of dim you take/are taking? and how long until you started seeing results and what kind of results? Also, did you take a liver supplement alongside dim? There are a lot of rave reviews on a brand called Estroblock - paid a butt ton to get this shipped frm the U.S to the U.K but I am scared to take it.
  11. wow, what an insightful and inspiring read. Thank you for sharing your story I am glad that Dianette worked for you. For me, it made me acne ten times worse and this didn't subside after 7 months on this pill, then they took it off me and made me switch anyway because they said I should of only been on it for 6 months. I don't think I could of coped with another month of my skin being like that though! however a lot of my friends have had success on this pill, and if it would of worked for me
  12. I've been searching and searching for one around my area (and I live in one of the bigger cities in the U.K) and I finally found a guy who seems to be exactly what I am looking for. He has a legit website which claims he has worked with people with stubborn problems such as acne and p.c.o.s before and he seemed sound when I was e-mailing him. So fingers crossed. I am paying for this obv. but I am serious about this and my private medical consultations for roaccutane the second time around were t
  13. I was on diane before, and I think if your estrogen is also high, estrogenic birth control can make matters worse because excess estrogen can convert to more testosterone. did it work for you? aah I see! its so tough to get a balance isn't it. my face literally went from bad to worse within the first month and never subsided that was my first experience of cystic acne. but all of my friends who went on it said it cleared them up right away.
  14. This is more a general curiosity than a call for advice really. A lot of hormonal acne sufferers have found relief and clear skin from using the birth co trol pill diane 35 (which im pretty aure here in the u.k. we call dianette). This was the first thing my doctor gave me when i went to him about my skin....however it made my acne TEN times worse. Cystic and painful and like ive never seen before. I was 16. I stayed on it for six months before switching to yaz which also didnt help but wasnt as
