  1. Documenting my current hormone levels- 11 weeks on Spiro and Yasmin and the start of Pregnenolone and Liver Detox that should help with hormone processing TESTOSTERONE, TOTAL, LC/MS/MS 52 H RANGE 2-45 ng/dl (Clearly very high hence my use of SPironolactone) FREE TESTOSTERONE 3.1 RANGE 0.1-6.4 pg/mL- Free Testosterone and DHT are the big bad guys, so both of them are in pretty decent mid range so Spiro has been helping DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE, DHT LC/MS/MS 20 RANGE IS 5-46 n
  2. Hey everyone- So its officially day 11 of spiro. Just yesterday I switched over to 50 mgs instead of 25 mgs and I didn't notice any bad side effects. I'm feeling pretty hopeful about spiro. I haven't had any bad breakouts yet (which isn't completely weird for me because I only get like one huge cyst a month anyway). I also got my MRI back for my ovarian cyst, and it turns out its a 4 centimeter DERMOID ovarian cyst (yes, the kind of cyst that contains hair, skin, nails, teeth, eyes, swea

    March 18, 2018 Saturday My face hurts literally. Especially along my jawline, chin and neck. It hurts physically, more so emotionally. - i know I’m just putting a band aid solution over by taking birth control again but I’m at wits end. - although i have been doind things to help my health and help with PCOS symptoms. Changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise. Cut out dairy, sugar and coffee. What can i do? Life is unfair.
  4. Hi Guys, my endo pescribed me Diane 35 and Androcur because my testosterone levels were high. I've been taking Diane 35 since october and Androcur 2,5mg since january. I had super oily skin on my face and body+ body hair. The oil production on my face has reduced but my body is still very oily. I got my hormones checked a month ago my endo said that my hormones are balanced but I still have bad skin I dont get it. I asked her if I could try spiro or up my androcur dosage but she said n

  6. Hey guys, so I'm new here. I'm kind of at my wits end with acne. I want so badly to be 100% clear all the time, not 99.9999% SOME of the time. Let me fill you in on my acne history: Acne reared its evil head(s) sometime shortly after my first menstrual period during the summer of my 12th birthday. Middle school was absolute hell, both for my face and my social life. The acne was, I'd say, mildly severe, mainly localized on my cheeks, forehead, and around my lips. It remained this way through m
  7. Hi, so background story.. I've been on 2 rounds of Accutane 20mg/ day (I weight about 100lbs) for 3 months within the span of 12 months. Each time I completed, I was clear but the acne crept up slowly within a few months. My acne started to flare up again and it's getting pretty bad. It was mostly a few CC and bumps by my jaw but it migrated to my cheek. I went to a naturopath who thinks I may have a hormonal imbalance from being on birth control for so long. So she told me to take DIM plus,
  8. I've been on Diane 35 for around 6 months, and it was prescribed by my dermatologist to treat my acne. Unfortunately, it hasn't really worked. In fact, I feel like it has worsened my acne, as I now get hormonal cystic break outs before getting my period, when I previously didn't. Anyway, since Diane 35 didn't stop my acne at all, and I haven't been on it for very long, will I break out if I stop taking it? The fear of my skin condition worsening is the only thing that's stopping me from quit

    PCOS Acne

    Having been diagnosed with PCOS really made me aware of the root causes of my acne. Unfortunately my hormones right now are still F’ed up and my face/skin is freaking out! LIKE FREAAAAKING OUT!!! I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2014, and began birth control. It really did help with keeping acne at bay I tell you that, however several months ago, I decided to let my body rest for a while - and now Acne is wreaking havoc again... i can even feel that my back is also acting up now! (Guess have bee

    March 19, 2018 Monday i just placed a sticker on my eyes because I had literally just been crying and crying when i took this picture.... sigh... it’s getting worse. I hate this!
  11. I've been battling acne since I was about 11. I'm now 26. I was on Accutane twice. It did clear me up. I was put on BC (Yaz) when I was 18 to keep it clear. Yaz gave me bad cramps so I switched to Ortho Tri Cyclen. I was on that for a long time. I switched to Orsythia, thinking my skin needed a mono pill since I still had bouts of acne. My skin has seen good and bad days. However, since Accutane (I think) I have been battling scalp acne. My scalp acne honestly bothers me more than my face an
  12. I'm 41 and this is my 3rd attempt to be free from oral contraceptives. I stopped Yaz 12 months ago, and as usual I have started breaking out in my chin area after 6 months being off the pill. I've taken a hormone test and results were very low estrogen and progesterone levels. This time I do not want to get back on the pill, but the temptation is there, as acne makes me feel miserable. Also when I'm off the pill it matters what I am eating. Seems eggs, fish and nuts, coffee and sports
