This is the begining of Week 9 Well, I broke out on Mon...3 ugly huge zits. Two were on my chin and 1 on my jaw line. So needles to say, I wasn't too happy, especially since Wed was my b-day. Anyways, the 3 zits are now scabs as a result of my constant picking. I know I know I need to stop. This might sound weird but I think I've been breaking out as a result of drinking green tea. The last time I drank it (2 weeks ago) I broke out and then I drank it again on Sun(last week) and I woke up on Mon with 3 new zits. It sucks b/c green tea is good for u. Not to mention it helped shed those extra pounds I gained taking the pill. So I think I'm going to lay off of drinking green tea for a while just to clear myself up and then try it again to see. On another positive note, the scars on my cheek seem to be fading. So at least outside in the sunshine they don't look so noticeable. Oh Ya, as u know Diane 35, has been deemed a bad b/p pill because it can cause a higher chance of blood clots. Well, I went to my dr and she checked me over, everything is ok. She said that the more active I am, the more I exercise and eat right, the less likely it can occur.

I've tried all sorts of BCP - Alesse, ortho tricyclen.. and Diane35 is the one with the least side effects and most effective on my acne. Though I still got some breakouts on Diane35, they weren't severe at all. I recommend it. But just be VERY VERY careful when u take it for a long time then decide to stop taking it, chances are your acne will get a lot worse.

I've been on Diane 35 for 5 weeks now. Let me tell, u I broke out soooooo badly the first 2 weeks. Then I even found out that I have severe allergies to grass and trees so that was also contributing to my breakout. LUCKY ME Anyways, recently I've started noticing an improvement. I only got 2 new ones, before I used to get 7 or 8 all at once. (watch I just jinxed myself) I have soooo many scars though. I've also notice I have many tiny bumps in between my eyes and my chin. Honestly, I would rather the little ones then those painful cysts. I hope I'm on the road to recovery. My doctor estimated I wouldn't see results until 6-8 weeks. Anyways, I would appreciate any feedback good or bad.
I have used this before it didnt do anything for me at all and i was on it for months so i didnt see the point

WOW....good for u. I wish you all the best. I broke out so badly. It was disgusting. It's been getting better, but this week is unfortunately a bad week b/c of PMS and my picking.

Â Â This is my 5th week on Diane 35,Â I have 3 new scabs b/c I picked and a whole bunch of little pimples on my cheeks and chin.Â I would rather however have little pimples then big, ugly cysts but it's my fault with the scabs.Â I can't help touching my face. I'm like a little kid.Â Anyways, does anyone know a good cream that can help to get rid of scars?Â Any imput is sooo appreciated.
ELICINA CREAM!! IT WORKED WONDERS FOR ME!!
you should give it a try.. and yeah loved ones do tell you what you want to hear sometimes but also realize that it'll always seem worst to you than others because when you look at urself u only look at ur imperfections.. others don't see it the way you do, so dont stress girl!

I'm in the middle of my 3rd month on this pill and u know I think things are looking up. I'm not as broken out as before. I actually only have 2. I haven't had this little in months. I do still have scars on one cheek and 1 side of my chin. I also stil have small tiny skin coloured bumps on that one side of my chin. These bumps can turn into huge suckers at any time. I went to a dr to get acne injections and I use Differin at night. This may work for me. I HOPE I DIDN'T JINX MYSELF!!!!

I just finished my 3rd month, which means this is my pms week. NOT LOOKING FORWARD to this. Overall, my face has improved very slowly. I still have numerous scars but I'm not breaking out as much as I used to. I have the acne still concentrated on 1 side of my cheek and 1 side of my chin. On the other cheek I have brownish scars that seem to be going away. I've been applying aloe vera gel to them hourly. I also bought the cream Elicina for my scars but I'm waiting for it to arrive. To add to my regimen, I use Differin gel at night which I like and I've been getting cortisone injections every 2 weeks. I've only gone twice to get these injections and the second time the dr was impressed with my improvements. Anyways, I guess I'm slowly recovering, although it's still not exactly where I want it to be. Like I said, this is my pms week so who knows what zit is lurking to come out. I also wanted to share that, I've read the Diane websites and it states that after 3 cycles (3 months) 30-50% of patients see improvements. After 12 cycles (1 year) 90% of patients see improvements. I really hope I'm part of that 30-50% I don't care if I still breakout as long as it's manageable or at least I can cover it and trust me since Feb, I've been experiencing the breakouts from hell. I'll keep u posted

I'm entering my 4th month this weekend. Well, my pms week was gross. I really broke out. I got 4 cystic zits. I went to my dr and she injected them so luckly they went down. They are now flaky scabs. I have a question though: like I previously said, I'm on my 4th month, I know everyone is different but shouldn't I now see some results? Shouldn't the breakouts be less and less? Before when I first started this pill HOLY COW I used to breakout a lot I would get 3-7 a day, very small or cyctic not to mention the millions of scars. My face was in constant breakout mode. Now I average 1-3 a day, sometimes none at all or 1 every second day. My scars at the moment are a noticeable but they seem to be fading with the use of aloe vera. Anyways, any imput would be appreciated. I just hope that clear skin is in my reach soon.

Thanks.....it sucks that it's such a waiting game. Somedays are definately better then others. The thing that sucks the most is when u think things are getting better, then ur hit with a reality check. I too think about my face constantly and stress over it. Maybe stressing has been causing some of my breakouts as well. Well I'm now on Month 4 and I'm sort of glad I'm back on b/c my pms weeks are just crazy. I've been experiencing these breakouts since Feb and that's why my dr prescribed this pill. Before Feb I would get 1-3 a WEEK and now well it's not happening. Go figure and I'm in my late 20, it's not like I'm a young teenager and stuff. My sister was on the same pill and she noticed results after the 3rd month so I guess it depends on the person. When u starting noticing clearer skin did it happen all at once or did it slowly start to get better and better? I wish u the best of luck and keep me posted
