Increased Acne
So this will be my 5th month off of BCP. Since I reached puberty I have had nonstop acne. I am now 26 and still dealing with it. Well, last month I went on a round of progesterone and now I'm getting acne in places I haven't had it since going on BCP.

A couple on the back, a tata, chest, shoulder.....ARGH.

Anyone else have this happen from progesterone or is this my body embracing the PCOS now that I'm off BCP?

Definitely annoying.

Re: Increased Acne
Google the oil cleansing method. Sounds like it's the opposite of what you'd want to do, but I promise it's amazing.

Re: Increased Acne
I have acne on my face and back! It is so annoying. Put honey on them overnight, covered by a band-aid...it works awesome!

Re: Increased Acne
I'll have to try these out. The thing is my acne was under control more or less for the last 9 years until I came off the pill and then the doctor put me on progesterone to kick start everything. Since my acne has been ridiculous.

Re: Increased Acne
Once I got off the pill..mine came back too. It is so annoying. I know how you feel.

Re: Increased Acne
in the last week I've been breaking out all over my face... 2 today! and I haven't been eating junk food at all, so I don't know what the heck is going on. I'm on CD 34 (which is normal... it can go from 28 - 90 days) and have just been over over-sensitive and crying for no reason... and the acne... WOW... I can't believe this
