Day 199

My skin is flawless six months on, no longer a problem. However I tried coming off it at my last period break, was off for 2 weeks but my skin started playing up again so I went back on it :(
So frustrating as I want a baby!!!
I took the last pill of my pack today, might give it another try. Apparently it takes 3 months for your hormones to get back to normal

Day 164

My skin is still good, even though I still get the occasional spot or two but my skin is not oily at all, smooth and glowing.
I've been clear for almost 3 months and I'm thinking of going off it to see how my skin copes without dianette.
Might try for a bit and see. I can't stay on the pill forever as I think I'd like children someday.
Watch this space!

Day 125

Still clear. No spots at all for well over a month :)
However my GP said I can only take Dianette for 6 more months :(
Until then I still won't go on accutane as I'm 100% clear.
I will only consider accutane if my acne returns post-dianette.

Day 114

Still clear. I haven't had a problem for about 3 weeks now.
I am now menstruating for the first time since starting Dianette. Took my 7 day break at last and didn't break out.

Day 104
Skin still perfect!
I think it's been at least 2 weeks since my last breakout :)
Very happy obviously, feeling so much more confident however still messed up from what I went through the past 5 months with acne.
Now I just really need to figure out what the plan is, I can only stay on dianette another 1 and half year and then what?
I hope other BCP will work on acne when I switch.
Decided not to go on accutane.
Happy new year everyone!
I might not update as often now?
