Hi guys, i know there is a million posts probably very similar to mine, but if you can offer advice or have any stories or suggestions I would be very greatful.

So, basically when I was younger, in my teens, I went on roaccuatane as I had severe acne (cystic) gross, red, everywhere. This was when I was about 14 and it cleared up, i forget how long it took but honestly I had the most beautiful skin. I would get a pimple every so often - but mostly when I was lazy with skin cleanlines etc.

Anyway, I am now 20 and all of a sudden I started breaking out, it was really gradual. First I had lots of really tiny bumps on the side of my cheeks and jaw and i didn't really think anything of it, but then as the months went by these 'little bumps'became pimples and right now I have like 10 huge zits. I am getting some scarring and it is truly awful to have to deal with this again. It's no whereas bad as what I experienced as a teenager, but I just don't understand!

So, I got fed up and went to visit the doctor and he suggested Diane 35. I am now going into week 2 of my second pack and I have broken out like crazy!

I guess I want to know A) How do I know if this will even clear my skin up? Is it only for hormonal acne? B) How do I know if I have hormonal acne! C) When can I start seeing results? I was on it for a month and when I got my first period on it (last week) my skin looked like it was clearing up and then this week it was a **** storm. What is going on! It seems like it gets clear for a few days then I break out like crazy. When did you guys start seeing results? The idea of waiting like 7 months terrifies me.

I have done some research and it seems to be hormonal, but I guess I am just freaking out a little bit that this won't even work. My usual bubbly, friendly self is starting to feel really self conscious because of my skin, it sucks!

Please, I'd love to hear you stories!
