  1. ...btw, I feel your pain. I have tried everything possible short of accutane. When I started breaking out so horribly several months ago, I dropped $2500 in 2 months trying to cure it with anything I could find. I actually had the blood test done through LEF (the company I get all my vitamins from), and took it into my Doctors office. Otherwise, who knows how long it would have taken, or how much more money I would have spent, trying to solve this issue. I really hope this works for you. Keep me
  2. Well, i certainly hope it works for you as well as it has for me. Just a note for anyone who is trying this out, I dont take anything without first talking with my dr. Luckily, I have an incredible dr who specializes in women's health, and believes in trying hollistic healing before drugs. UPDATE: after three weeks on my program, I dropped my dose from 50-100mg of pregnenolone down to 25-50 mg a day. I just switch off every other day, 25 one day, 50 the next. Soon I'll try doing only 25 a da
  3. I have (or have the potential to have) very severe cystic hormonal acne. I have tried literally everything short of Accutane, both natural and chemical, to control it. The only thing I found to work for me is a supplement called pregnenolone. I take 50mg every morning, and it has almost completely cleared my skin. There was a time when I was getting up to 8 new cysts every day, and now I may have a couple small ones a month. It only took about a week to make a HUGE difference. I would certainly
  4. Hi, I thought you might find my post helpful I recently struggled with a HORRIBLE bout of hormonal acne. I went to several different doctors, none of whom helped. After doing tons of research, I was able to finally get control of my skin with two natural products, Pregnenolone and Saw Palmetto. You can read more about it in my post. Good Luck! I hope it helps you
  5. I was also on yasmin for about 5 months, and I personally didnt have great results. I am not on the pill now. Saw Palmetto works to lower testosterone levels...I'm not sure whether or not it would interfere with the effectiveness of the pill. You may want to make a quick call to your Dr's office just to be safe. Good luck!
  6. I havent had any problems with a loss of sex drive, headaches, or anything of that nature. I havent noticed any negative side effects. I still have the occassional breakout, but it is very minor in comparison to what I used to have. I buy all of my vitamins/supplements through Life Extension (lef.org) because of the high quality of their products, but I am sure you can find the supplements at your local health store. I know I have seen saw palmetto at Whole Foods. Good Luck! Let me know if it wo
  7. Hi everyone! This is my first time posting, although I have been a reader of this forum for a few years. I just wanted to let everyone know how I have finally managed to control a severe case of cystic acne that has been reoccurring since I was a teenager. I am now 22. Over the last 3 months, my skin erupted into the worse case of cystic acne I had ever had. I have been to dermatologists, an endocrinologist, two women's health doctors, and my gynecologist. I had two blood tests done through Li
