  1. Have been on Metformin for one month now. I was prescribed it by my endocrinologist as I was diagnosed with P.C.O.S and my acne is hormonal and tends to flare before I get my period (only when it is late. regular periods see my skin improve massivley - therefore, if my periods can be regulated hopefully so can my skin). Metformin works by treating the insulin resistance in your body, which sends your hormones out of whack and causes raised androgens which in turn creates raised testosterone whi
  2. Hello All! Like all of you I am on a quest to clear my skin and bring my body to some form of hormonal balance. A little about my acne i actually never had acne issue until I went on another bcp (for PCOS and irregular cycles) called Lutera. I was on that for 2 months or so and came off of it because I was getting really weird side effects like night sweats, nausea and mild acne of course. When I came off of it all hell broke loose and I started experiencing hot flashes, more acne, extremely
  3. So basically after a lot of thinking and a lot of experience of prescribed meds and a lot of research (I'm still not done researching) I have decided to come off Metformin and try a more natural way of controlling my hormonal breakouts of acne that unfortunatly, come with having P.C.O.S I have been on Metformin for over a month now and I'm not really sure how I feel about it. To begin with I'm not really sure exactly why I was prescribed it. I understand it is supposed to regulate periods b
  4. I am taking metformin and inositol, both of which boost progesterone. I’ve read that progesterone is good for acne but also that it can increase sebum production. I’ve noticed my nose is oilier lately, like really oily. I still get nodules; however, in the past I’ve gotten nodules but not had an oily nose. The rest of my skin is dry in fact. I’m wondering if anyone has had an experience with increased oily skin as a result of too high of a dose of inositol or metformin? If so, did lowering your
  5. Really want some feedback for metformin. I have been on it about two weeks now not long at all but I dont know how I feel about it. also using Duac (benyzol peroxide) on my face once at night. I feel disgusting and I don't know how any one will ever be able to love me when I look like this
  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. Hello everyone, My name is Rachel and I am 24 years old. So a quick rundown of my acne story is--I've had very mild acne for most of my life. Aside from breakouts on my forehead (mostly comedonal) that had to do with my bangs, and the occasional breakout on my chin during my periods I never really had a big problem. However in December, I experienced a extremely long menstrual cycle and was told by my GP, (after further testing) that I had PCOS. He recommended Metformin because I didn't want
  8. I have been on Metformin for three weeks now and I just don't feel like it is helping at all. If anything I feel like it is making my skin worse - it feels oily and disgusting I have smaller spots all over my face where I don't usually get any and my acne is red flared faded and disgusting. I can't handle looking in a mirror. I don't recognise myself. I'm teary and depressed. I don't want to go out or see people. I keep trying to put things into perspective to make myself feel better but I can't
  9. My Endo said I should try 500 mg of extended release Metformin toward bed time every night to lower slightly elevated total T levels [45 ng/dl, needs to be around 25. DHEA-S also needs to go down over 100 points]. BCPs made my acne 100x worse and same for Spiro, strangely enough, so she said this would probably be better since it doesn't screw with my estrogen levels at all. She said Met will take a few cycles to help, but it will lower these androgens and also raise my progesterone which was on
