Birth Control Board Index

Androgen is the testertone hormone your talking about which leads to acne and excess oil. Birth control pills come in all different levels of estrogen and testosterone, therefore you would be interested in a pill with a " low" androgen level, aka "anti androgen". some pills like yasmin and yaz are known for skin clearing and they have spiro in it which is an anti androgen thing. for the most part anypill after contiued usage can improve the quality because it gets your hormones on a consistant and steady level, resulting in in avoiding the unessarsary surges in fluctuations that a teen or girl in her twenties (sometimes girls with clear skin all of a suden hit 20 and get zits- this is completely hormonal and can be corrected witht the right treatment)

so you should definatily research androgen and the pills that invovle the varying levels. a dermatogist can perscribe BC for that puporse, as well as a gp. If yo have hormonal issues your gyno or an endocrinologist can help too. I had perfect skin my whole life and then half way into my freshman year of college i got a zit that would alternate cheeks everymuch and then my skin got oily. all my stress messed up my hormones, resulting in "hormonal " acne. i new something was wrong with my body (judging by this zit thing and my moods) so i consulted the gyno and we tried out some pills. although i am now on a :high androgen pill, which could cause acne. it is strong, and has set my hormones strait, and i no longer have that acne, my skin is beautiful and i feel great. I am soo thrilled to be feeling myself agian , it is truly a blessing for me.

sounds like your acne is under control so mabye you dont want to mess. the gyno and birth control are drugs that pump you up with artificials so choose wisely. i also noticed hesitations about woman dr.s in your post because your not sexually acitve. its common for girls to think like their bad for visiting one , its like a stigma like your a skanky slu*t or you must be acitve or pregnant. a gyno should be seen even if your not acitve at all, she/ he is someone who knows all about the female body!! what a valuable resource, - ladies were not all about sex! we are people who deserve to have all of our functioning systems provided for.

good luck and dont worry about things!
