Progesterone gave me facial and body hair
I'm 28 and after blood and urine tests I was told I have literary no progesterone. I have been on the "Diane" pill for 12 years to help with my acne (which did not work) but mainly for contraceptive purposes.
I have regular periods but I was ordered by my doctor to go off the pill and take 100mg of bio identical compounded progesterone (troche) daily at night. After 2 months my acne flared up severely and I started growing dark black facial hair on my lip, chin, forehead, cheeks, sides of my neck, belly and back. I went back to my doctor who could not understand why it happened and told me to stop taking the progesterone. Its been 2 months since I stopped it and I continue to have the facial hair and cystic like acne, despite waxing weekly and using multiple acne treatments.
Was the dose too high and can anything be done as I am as hairy as a man and as oily/breakout faced as a teen? I'm desperate to try and look "normal" again as it has cost me my job and my social life.
