Why is it back?!?!?
Aug 23, 2006
I had really bad acne when I was in high school, I still have a lot of scarring. I tried everything back then short of accutane. My derm suggested birth control pills when nothing else worked(which took a lot of convincing to make my mom agree). I finally went on the pill when I was 16, tried many different kinds but found one that worked. Anyway it started clearing, never completely clear but it was soo much better and more manageable. Now I am 23 and just went off the pill about a month ago because the other side effects were just too much to deal with anymore plus my husband and I are going to try to have kids soon. My acne has started coming back although not as severe, but it has only been a month! Shouldn't I have outgrown it by now? Could it just be hormone withdrawl? I'm afraid that all those emotional problems(depression, self-hate, anger, etc) are going to come back and I don't think I could go through that again. What can I do? Anyone else been through this?
