Had the WORST time on this pill, I thought id give it ago as pills have different effects on different people but yes the horrid reviews I had read were right! I have pretty bad acne on jawline and I don't think dianette helped it at all sometimes I thought it was improving but then got worse. I tried this for 4 months and I know people say you have to be patient but I had to come off because it was ruining my life! I was depressed all the time, got headaches, really tired and I felt like my relationship with my partner was suffering because I just didn't want to have sex! My stomach was so bloated all the time, I looked about 3 months pregnant and I had these weird feelings like I had eaten NOTHING for a week even though I could have had a meal half an hour before!

Well I gave it a try and I can say I will NEVER do this again id rather have spots! Im using duac and retin A from the doctors and this helps more.

I suffered with acne from 8 years old until I was 18. I tried everything and nothing ever worked to cure it. It was on my face, chest, shoulders and back. When I went to the doctor to go on the pill, he suggested Dianette. Within months, my acne had completely gone and I felt confident about my appearance for the first time. I continued on Dianette for about 7 years until I changed doctors and my new one suggested I come off it. I wasn't happy so did some research and insisted that he switch me to Yasmin instead. He agreed and I stayed spot free for a further 5 years. Last June I came off the pill as I'm now ready to start a family. I reasoned that since I'm now 30 I couldn't possibly still have acne. Wrong! They're back though not as bad as when I was younger. I feel a bit ridiculous with them as I teach teenagers. Am looking forward to going back on the pill after having a baby as I know that nothing else works.

Throughout my teenage years I was constantly at the doctors trying to find a solution to try and clear up my very bad acne...tablets, gels, facewash...u name it I was on it!! And every time no improvement! Decided that nothing was going to work for me so went to the dermatologists and ended up on raccutane! This took no time to clear my skin! I was so chuffed with the results :) once my course of tablets was finished I stayed on dianette as a precaution to keep my skin clear and have been for years until recently! Dianette really helped keep my clear skin flawless! I went off them once for a few weeks and ended up having to go back onto raccutane again to control my spots! I gained weight on this pill but that's because I ate too many takeaways and drank too much booze once I went to Uni (it was worth it haha)...when I finished Uni the weight just dropped off! Lol this pill didn't affect my moods! To sum up...I was so pleased with Dianette! Am ragin my Doc has took me off it :(

Ive only used dianette for about 9 days and it has already reduced my acne but not completely. I'll update if I see any changed in my skin and see if it's improved later on :D ( fingers crossed). The reviews are varied so I think it just depends on everyone individually! Im 17 and only in the last 4 months ive had acne on the sides of my neck and jawline what's really annoying. I as wondering if anyone knows if it's ok to carry on taking the next pack of pills after finishing the first so I miss a period (as im on holiday for a week)? Xxx

you definitely need to wait for these tablets to work, don't give up hope. i think after youre 3rd of 4th months there should be some improvement. if youre depressed etc seriously consider taking a different tablet as these dramatically effect your mood. good luck to anyone else trying them!x
