Is Your Acne A Sign Of PCOD?

Acne Can Be Caused By PCOD

If you’re a woman who never experienced acne before, but you’re suddenly experiencing it now, along with other symptoms such as weight gain, irregular menstruation, mood changes, and unusual hair growth, you may have polycystic ovarian disease, also known as polycystic ovarian syndrome, PCOS and PCOD. But what is PCOD and how does it cause acne?

PCOD And The Development Of Acne

A woman who develops PCOD will experience a sudden surge in the male hormone called DHT. DHT will cause a woman’s skin to produce more oil and this can contribute to severe acne outbreaks. Because the acne is being caused from within, no amount of cleansing or external acne treatments will help the condition.

No one is really sure what causes PCOD, although there is evidence that the condition may be related to genetics. It is more common than many think and the condition often goes undiagnosed. If you’re experiencing the symptoms of PCOD, it’s important to talk to a doctor. By taking medication prescribed by a doctor you can balance your hormone levels and you should be able to correct your skin’s acne problems.
