Contraceptive might have caused hormonal imbalance n my girl is bleedin heavily, please explain what must be done to fix the imbalance n resultant prob?

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

Can a hormone imbalance be the? Cause of acne?

Yes: If a woman has much acne, it is likely to be due to extra androgens, especially if her periods are not quite normal; this is very common and your family physician or gynecologist has already considered it.

Same condition: Cystic acne is just more advanced/aggressive. Treatment needs more than topicals, like adding oral antibiotics or even accutane. Keflex is not a standard rx, but it might help some. Acne is (male) hormone related, but it also aggravated by stress, etc. ...Read more

Possible: You are asking an excellent question whose answer is not simple. Your heavier menstruation or abnormal menses can indicate hormonal irregularities, but not always.

Do you think I have a hormone imbalance I've always had acne but it's become worse and now it's on my back face, neck, been to dermatologist B 4.???

Just manage it: If your monthly cycle is normal, you will not find a treatable underlying cause for your acne. If I understand your history, you are using doxycycline as sole therapy for acne. You need to add a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide. You may also benefit from a medicine like spironolactone, and various forms of the oral contraceptive pill can work as well. ...Read more
