i have no doubt that diane clears up acne. my cousin had horrendous acne, even on her brows. Now, 7 months later, you look at her and you would never believe she had a pimple. She has 1-2 scars on her cheeks. I think doctors take you off diane after 35 months and switch you over to a diff pill because diane is high risk. diane is actually prescribed for acne, so just be patient and give it time.
i took it when i was 16 but it was horrible for me, i lost a lot of hair, gained weight, got leg pains and migraines, basically was shit, and my mom experienced the same. but my cousins take it and its great for them. if your hormones are the problem, obviously its better to control your hormones than take accutane because your not fixing any hormonal problem with accutane. my doc even said to me "look, if your coming to me for breakouts of 1 or two cysts or pimples before your period, i can't help you. this is something only hormones can fix". accutane works for all types of acne, it might clear you but if your hormones are imbalanced you have a high chance of it coming back, at least i read about that. red marks fade with time, but long term side effects that could be caused by accutane won't.
