I've suffered from acne since I was a teenager. When I was younger doctors prescribed daily antibiotics, which in turn caused me all sorts of other problems. But in the main, I have used Dianette, the contraceptive anti-androgen pill to manage my acne.
I have also however, always suffered from tiredness, depression, foggy headedness and poor concentration and memory.
I recently stopped taking Dianette after approx 10 years on and off and my acne has come back with avengence!! I also lost a lot of my hair and now have a receded hair line. At this point I'd like to add that I am 27, and have had all these symptoms since I was at least 14. So does that mean I have been perimenopausal all this time?
I have recently bought Natpro, used it for 5 days and got my period (first proper one since stopping dianette 10 months ago). So it's obviously done something to my hormones.
I now need to wait till day 15 to start taking it again, What I really want to know is, how long will it take for my acne to clear? And will my hair ever grow back?
Advice would be greatly appreciated.
