Hormone levels relating to a miscarriage
I had a miscarraige last year. I am 30 years old and have been battling with pimples on my chin and back for the last 2 years. I cleanse, tone & moisturise twice daily and just cannot get rid of the pimples. Do you think that the pimples and the miscariage could be related to a hormone imbalance? Should I go for a blood test and have the levels checked? My cycle is as regular as clockwork. Could my cycle be regular if my hormones were out of balance? Thanks for a very helpful website.

I don't think that the pimples and the miscarriage are related. Some acne can be hormonal but, before you go having hormone checks, I would suggest that you use one of the acne solutions available at pharmacists.
