I never had very severe acne as a teenager and only had the occassional pimple as an adult. I am now 36 years old and have terrible acne including cysts. I also have had some pimples on my upper back and scalp. I did have this level of acne (and worse) for a few months while pregnant with my twin boys, but consistent treatment with Proactive after they were born completely cleared this up and I have been virtually acne free for 4 years now.

I also recently had a significant weight gain -- about 20 pounds in the last year (I am very active, exercise regularly, and did not change my diet). Due to this, I changed my birth control from Depo Provera to the new IUD called Mirena. It should be noted, however, that the acne had already become severe before this change, but it hasn't gotten any better either.

I have gone from a reasonably fit 30-something with very nice skin to a fat, acne covered ogre in less than a year! HELP!
