Just thought I'd add my two cents ... regarding getting acne before your period, I've found that spironolactone helps. It decreases the type of testosterone that can cause oily skin and breakouts. It's also a diuretic, which helps with bloating, but you'll pee a lot at first and feel thirsty.

I've tried everything for acne (antibiotics, Retin-A, etc.) and this stuff really does work. If you get your testosterone levels checked a few days before your period and they are higher than normal, I'd give spiro a try.
