the bottom line is that it worked for me. (i'm actually on estelle, which is a brand of diane, it's just cheaper!) i was skeptical, i'd tried everything, i had also tried loette, another form of pill for acne. i have been on it for just over two months now and my skin has drastically improved! i had terrible hormonal chin acne which was really, really red, and now i have no new noticeable pimples, only the bit of scarring that's going away now :) couldn't be happier! give it a go!
So for all the girls taking this bcp all I have to say is please be patient and look forward to the positive end result. It may be bad now but if your acne is hormonal this is a great solution, coming from someone who has tried everything. My doctor had even prescribed me accutane but I wanted to give this one last try before i did and I'm so happy i took the chance. My acne was absolutely horrible but finally after 10 years I'm beginning to feel confident in my own skin
It is a SHORT term fix, a bandaid that will make your acne so much worse when you stop it.
Diane is probably going to clear you out.
However, you will never be able to come off of it without breaking out and once you come off, your acne will get 10X worse.
I've been on and off diane for the past 7 years and before going on it, I had just a few breakouts which never stopped me from doing anything.
But that wasn't good enough, I wanted perfection. So I went on Diane and cleared out 100%. My Skin was flawless.
Long story short, after many years of taking this pill, I decided I wanted to stop injecting my system with hormones.
Ever since I stopped (8months ago) my skin has been breaking out like never before. I developped acne in places I've never had acne before.
My skin is suuuper oily and so is my hair.
I highly recommend you do not take this poison or any other birth control pill. It will completely mess up your hormones and you will regret it in the future.
I now feel a lot of regret and grief over my decision to take this pill. If I could go back in time I would have never started it.
I wish someone had told me this years ago. If you have a few breakouts, there are ways to live with them without messing up your entire system.
I hope this was helpful.
If you don't believe me, Google "dianette feels like it has been a total horror story".
Some girls have gone bald because of this evil pill.
Definitely works, and for me had no side-effects. Life with clear skin is amazing! However, because of recent investigations, I may have to consider another pill.
If you got stubborn acne and oily skin that ruins your confidence I recommend that you try this product !
This completely cleared my skin in approx a month. I suffered from acne which would become dramatically worse the week before my period. My skin is clear, smooth and more vibrant. Also needs very little maintenance to keep it clear. No negative side effects for me, and it also has the benefit of birth control. Completely eliminated severe cramps and pain from periods as well.
Diane combined with my topical skin routine cleared up my acne for the first time ever although has started to give me anxiety
You need to try this pill if you have hormonal acne. Give it at least 3-5 months before seeing results. You will see your face will start getting less oily before your acne decreases. I did not have 1 pimpke for 12 years. I call it my miracle pill.
Diane did the job when it came to reducing acne and oil production however the trade-off is that I constantly felt uneasy, anxious, paranoid when I used to be a generally a cheery and passive person.
In hindsight, I would not have taken Diane in the first place because I'd rather have bad skin than being an emotional wreck all the time. On top of that, now that I am off the pill my acne came back even worse than before, it's even on my chest and back where I never had a problem with before.
