Acne during pregnancy. Lock Rss

Hi Everyone!

I am 23 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and I have had terrible acne right the way through. I saw a skin specialist today who told me that sometimes if the baby is a boy, the testosterone can be part of the cause. I have struggled with acne for some time but got it under control a few years back and had no troubles during pregnancy with my daughter.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this with being pregnant with boys???

Thanks

During the first few months of this (my third) pregnancy I got terrible acne, had the worst breakouts, my skin is still not great but on the plus it has improved heaps!
However I have had 2 previous babies and both of them are boys and I had the nice pregnancy glow with both so def felt a bit ripped off this time!
I had terrible acne as a teenager and was on roacutane for a couple of years, I would still get bad spots (cystic acne - a bit like boils sad ) every now and again. Since having my DD my acne has been cured!! (at the ripe old age of 30!!) So hopefully once your bubbas are born your skin will be fine smile
i had terrible acne during my pregnancy right up till about 29 weeks. Don't know about the boy thing though - i had twin girls smile
