Is cystic Acne a common “side effect” of infertility? We’ve been ttc for 4 1/2 years now. My periods are “normal” usually 30-35 days apart more or less. I don’t have terrible periods but around ovulation time I cramp and get cystic acne on my face, usually on the same side of my face that I cramp on. I sometimes tract ovulation and some months I’m just to tired of trying (you know?) so in other words. If anyone has the same problem, what have you done to control it? Since I’m a “stay at home mom” (we have one 7 year old who goes to school so I’m usually home alone) I usually just let them heal on their own but I need to pick my life back up start working and not be controlled by infertility anymore.
