hey everyone...
this is a really interesting thread for me....ive dealt with acne since the age of 11...i decided to go on bcp when i was 19...i went off and boom had 2 cysts that did not go away and i never had cysts before, just regular acne...anyways, i went back on bcp and still suffered with cysts until after 6 months, then things started to clear..my doc switched my bcp and things got crazy again..then worse and worse...finally, after a year of debating and research i went on accutane...i just finished in august and im 21 almost 22 now...my skin looks great, still some scarring but not much at all...
BUT....i had an ultrasound done about a month ago cuz ive been suspicious about having pcos..sure enough my ultrasound came back which "suggested" pcos..so its not a full diagnosis yet..i got a referral to a obgyn, which isnt until january...i was really upset when i got the news cuz i am one who has dreamt about having children and now i may have difficulties...but it does explain the persistant acne issue...its a really awkward and weird syndrome (pcos) and there is no cure, only meds to control the symtoms, but i hate being on meds...esp. bcp...
my skin is great for now, but who knows it may return....and when and if it does i dont want meds...id rather have a more natural approach to fighting it cuz i too believe in the inside aspect rather than topicals...
plus, im not planning on getting pregnant for a long time, stil have plenty of school ahead of me...but when i am ready im terrified that my acne will come back full force when i go off bc...but what can i do if im trying to have a baby....
i would love to see a naturalpathic dr but i cant afford it...
i just wanted to tell my story and that i too am suffering from acne and pcos and am looking for advice/options/suggestions about the issue
thanks!

good luck to all!
