Re: **--pcos & Acne--**
i used accutan a year ago to resolve my 10 year battle with acne. I am very satisfied with the results and i highly recommend accutane. BUT, i was diagnosed with PCOS after I took accutane, turns out my acne battle for 10 years was probably caused by my PCOS. Do everything you can to get the PCOS under contol first and see if it clears up. many people have success with ortho tricylcen to clear acne and regulate periods. I did not, infact the pill made me a little bit crazy. I now use the nuva ring and I love it. Periods are regular, not really a big deal at all. Accutane is a really big step, but if it comes down to it, use it.
