Re: acne and weight gain

Pregnancy can effect thyroid hormone levels.It is possible that your body will readjust on it's own,but You may want to have your thyroid checked for Hypothyroidism.Hypothyroidism can cause weight gain even though you are barely eating,bad skin,feeling cold and tired all the time.

Are you taking birth control pills? It's possible they are adding to the weight gain if you are,but it also may help with your acne and balance hormones.
Pregnancy is hard on your body and your hormones.It takes a while for things to get back to normal after wards.Hang in there!

Re: acne and weight gain

Taking a multi-vitamin with iodine is fine,and shouldn't effect your thyroid test.
Birth control may actually help with facial hair and Acne by regulating hormones.Yaz and Yasmin especially.If you don't want to be on a birth control pill,you could ask your doctor about Spironolactone.
Have you tried any over the counter products? Benzoyl peroxide? Salicylic acid?

Re: acne and weight gain

Definitely sounds to me like excess Testosterone. Yes, even us females have some T, not that you really have an excess but you are converting testosterone to DyHydroTestosterone, DHT. I've suffered with terrible acne/oily skin and now the hair growth since my teen years. No one ever told me about the hormone connection...just gave me antibiotics (for years on end) and a round of accutane. It wasn't until I started really looking into hormone issues (I'm 42) that I realized what had been happening in my body!

Like the above poster mentioned Spironolactone is used in women to stop the conversion of Testosterone to DHT which causes oily skin/acne/unwanted hair growth and even hair loss in women. Check it out. There is alot of info about it as a treatment for acne. Oh and yes I've tried it and I couldn't believe how it cleared me up!

Good Luck

Re: acne and weight gain

The products work,you just have to use them all the time and they don't get to the cause of the problem (the inside)

Birth control effects hormones by regulating them.Hormones fluctuate up and down normally,and birth control keeps them pretty steady.
Many women will get acne before their periods because of hormones spiking right before.If you are on birth control,this happens less drastically so you may not break out or if you do it won't be as severe.
Some women are sensitive to the hormone testosterone, (male hormone we all have small traces of) and that causes acne too.Birth control pills cut testosterone down so it cannot have negative effects like acne,and facial hair growth.
