  1. Hello everyone! I know long post... please give it a read?:) Ok, so I’ve been reading this forum form or years. You all seem to be very educated and know what you’re talking about when it comes to acne. I’m really hoping there’s someone that can give me some advice or suggestions for my acne. So backstory... had acne since 13, mostly just whiteheads and some pastuels on my forehead. Never on the lower half of my face where the hormonal acne “should be”. That bothered me so very much t

    May Regimen 2012

    It's mostly clear, fewer pimples and less severe, but the few I do have are large, red but not pustules. No current cysts, 2 blemishes on my left cheek, 1 blemish on my forehead. Healing marks between my eyebrows, right cheek, and chin. Red marks are fading from the Deming gel. What I'm doing right now, the diet and supplements is something I'd be doing if it helped my acne or not: Diet- Mostly Vegan (except for supplements), gluten-free, avoid soy, peanuts, citrus, and avoiding IgG re
  3. I was wondering if anyone has come across myomin when researching estrogen dominance. I saw my dr. and I'm waiting for my hormone tests to come back, but she thinks that in addition to high androgens I also have high estrogen. So far, I have been treating high androgens and low progesterone with good results, but haven't address estrogen in my treatment. Anyway, the doctor told me to look into myomin and see if I'm comfortable taking it. I've seen it mentioned briefly on PCOS forums but not he
  4. Hey everyone, my name is Nola. I'm quite lost and I need help deciding what I should do about this acne. It seems hard to ever get a response on here anymore, so I'd greatly appreciate any help. I've recently got my hormone saliva test back and I need help deciphering it. but first, my background: 23 yr old female, I've been taking spironolactone 100mg for 2 years now..It got me completely clear in 4 months. I've recently started breaking out again (although not nearly as bad as my pre-spi
  5. Hello, I hope you guys can help me because my doctor is not helpful at all and I am getting very depressed. I am 32 f, and have been on spironolactone (the brand they sell at walgreens) for the 3rd month now. I originally went on it because I was feeling very hormonal all the time, emotional, depressed, and getting bad breakouts at least twice a month with scarring. well, since I started it I have been feeling worse. I gained weight, I'm always bloated and moody, I can't even have the ene
  6. Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you all the knowledge I've picked up about acne and how for some women, it's actually rooted in PCOS and/or estrogen dominance. It's taken me far too long to get diagnosed with PCOS, which was actually the cause of my sudden onset 'adult acne', due to inefficient doctors. I created this in an effort to help other women who have suddenly been plagued with skin issues and other hormonal problems. In the guide, I talk about how you can use prescriptive meds, as
  7. i wanted to post my spiro experience here- and get any feedback on other user's experiences. firstly, ever since i could remember i have had on/off SEVERE acne. all over the face. i could not even put a finger on an area that did not have a bump or red mark on it. I wanted to avoid birth control/ RX routes so i tried every diet (gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian) and supplement/ natural method that i could think of (zinc, vit d, berberine, vit a, etc.) Nothing helped in the slightest bit.
  8. I'm going to start logging my progress, or lack thereof, using Emerita's Pro-gest natural progesterone cream for PMS, and to a lesser extent acne. My acne, after much trial and error, is pretty well under control right now. I still get small, non-inflamed acne quite frequently, but its barely noticeable and goes away very fast. I have a dairy-free, sugar-free, super healthy diet to thank for this, as well a few supplements like DIM, zinc, magnesium plus high doses of vitamin C and D. Recentl
  9. This is going to be really long, to record what discoveries I've made in the last few months. The TL;DR version: I'm now taking a low dose of spiro and supplementing with a dab of progesterone cream for the 2 weeks prior to my period. Also, I found a really good article that breaks down PCOS and acne and how to treat it holistically: http://ndnr.com/web-articles/dermatology/treating-pcos-acne-from-the-inside-out/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  10. Hi All, Thanks for dropping by. Can some one tell me what it estrogen dominance and the theory behind it? I know that it's a condition where a woman has an imbalance in her estrogen to progesterone ratio, with estrogen being too high (or progesterone being too low), which contributes to acne and an array of PMS. HOWEVER the part I don't get is that, I thought high progesterone gives you more sebum thus more acne, not low. And I've read many scientific papers that high estrogen is good f
  11. I was going to post this to the hormonal forum, but it might help more people here. There are old threads about this topic. I read a while ago that symptoms of estrogen dominance can include allergies and increased histamines. Since for me, my food intolerances are created by improper digestion and high histamines rather than specific foods, I was trying to find what caused all my issues. After some discussions on the hormonal forum a while back, I decided to try DIM along with my usual suppleme
