    Oh, and I forgot to say, I don't take Ibuprofen for cramps or anything so I'm pretty sure my skin getting better during this time is a hormonal thing.

    My skin gets really bad before my period, when I'm on my period my skin is at its best.

    I am on the pill but I experience the same. As I said I am usually constantly under Ibuprofen when I am on my period, but I am also off the pill in that time... pne of the two must have an effect somehow... questions over questions

    I think mine is best the week afterwards. Although there are so many factors that affect it I find it difficult to work out!

    Mine during and a week after. It's from the ovulation up to my period where my skin gets out of control. I suspect something hormonal/autoimmune is causing it.

    My understanding after some googling is that estrogen falls during the week before our period. And rises during the week we're on our period.

    So would that imply that the pill would help reduce symptoms?

    In this article it says estrogen and progesterone are at its lowest during menstruation.
