Hello girls, I don't know if I have PCOS but I have both acne and hair loss so I thought this section was the most appropriate for my question. I have hair loss, probably due to low ferritin levels and an hormonal imbalance. According to my blood tests I have a mild hyperandrogenia. I had acne for years, until I started taking a birth control pill (Diane 35) that contained 2 mg Cyproterone acetate, at 21 years. I had no acne at all for 6 years, while I was taking (only) this pill. Around December 2010, because of my hair loss, I started taking Androcur, which contains 50 mg Cyproterone acetate. It was the only change, I was still under Diane 35. A few months later, my acne gradually came back. I'm still taking Androcur, with Provames now (estradiol, 2mg) and my acne is still there. It's not too strong so I can conceal it with make-up. The problem is that I lose a lot of hair everyday and my hair is as oily as before (I have to wash it everyday). I think Androcur is not working for me and I don't know what to think about my acne. What happens to me sounds totally illogical and the doctors I saw could not give me an explanation. I would like to know if some of you experienced a similar situation and hope you can give me some advice. My endocrinologist thinks the treatment will work and I should not stop it. She doesn't take into account my acne because it's mild and she doesn't see it due to my makeup. Basically, she thinks I'm a bit crazy and I have no acne at all... Thank you for your help and sorry for the long message.
