Around the time i started experiencing heavier than my normal bleeding i started getting horrible acne. Could it be a hormone imbalance w/no ovulation?

In brief: 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. These changes (for example pcos) can be linked to acne. Discuss this with your obgyn or dermatologist. They can check with some blood work.
