Dianette 3rd month

So I'm nearing the end of my fourth pack now, I have skipped every single pill break because I don't want to get spots during the break. I did research and apparantley it's safe to do so and there is no medical reason for having the 7 day pill break (but don't know this for sure so I would check with your doctor before doing so). Just wanted to give you an update on my skin, so my skin has stayed pretty clear however I have had a few spots. I believe it may have been to do with me going out a

2 and a half months

So I'm now nearing the end of the third month and my skin has cleared up a lot. I only have a few spots on my cheeks which are small however my face is extremely oily still and therefore I'm not sure if my problem is the anti Adrogen thing cos before using this pill my skin is as clear using rigedivon however I think my problem was a bad reaction to stopping tretinoin and. That said, for a few weeks I haven't had any spots on my chin which I would used to get occasionally so 10000% it's doing a

Week 5

Skin is still breaking out particularly on my cheeks!! Keep getting this small little pimples on my cheek which take forever for to go! Seeing some signs of progress however with parts of my skin clearing up although I'm not holding my breath at how long iTll last! I hope it does but I'm still only 5 weeks in so certainly am expecting mor purging after reading other people's experiences. I have noticed this morning that there seems to be a decrease in the amount of oil on my face! Still a bit oi

DAY 25

Day 25 So I have been taking dianette for 3 and a half weeks now, and am now on the second strip. I have missed my 7 day pill break as I mentioned before. I really dont have much to report, so my skins is still getting spots obviously and what Im finding is that the spots I have really take ages to get rid of!! So i am trying to find a good treatment to dry out the spots quickly. My chin has one cyst which is coming to a head (I used the body shop tea tree gel stick which I can honestly say is

Day 19

So I have 2 pills left of my first pack and I'm going to skip the 7 day break on advice from my doctor.  My skin is obviously still in the initial break out stage, like I feel quite crappy about it. I have about 14/15 spots at the moment, the problem I'm having right now is that my spots stay for ages and I feel as though that's what is making me feel worse about it as a lot do the spots I have have been there for about a week maybe more!  Iv heard that month 3 is when people often start to s

2 WEEKS

Week 2 umm my skin is not great.  The breakout that I previously had has pretty much cleared up but I now have new spots, a few white head type spots on forehead and a few small spots on cheeks and then my chin is the only thing really bothering me at the moment to be honest! It started to clear up the other day (the huge cysts that I had on my chin) and as they were healing I kept touching them and I think it aggravated them and they became re swollen and infected, plus one completely new cy

Day 6

DAY 6 My skin isn't looking great today, not that I really have any new spots it's just that all my existing ones are so irritated. My skin had very tiny pinhead size dots on my chin which you couldn't really see at all and some on my cheeks however these seem to all be irritated therefore it looks so bad! I hope that when they clear up I won't get anymore of those tiny spots though so I'm just waiting for this breakout to clear up. I should add though that this could be because of the treclin

Day 4

DAY 4 Not had much change since yesterday other than 4 spots on my chin that should have been gone by now are still there. 2 of them are much less inflamed than yesterday however the other 2 are really irritated and so painful like it actually hurts constantly.  I found that the Vicks vapor rub helps to stop the pain and reduce the size but only to a certain degree and then I also find that I think it causes the skin around it to break out so I'm stopping using that now.  Instead I have us

Day 3

DAY 3  My skin has been kind of the same as yesterday and just feel like everything is a bit more inflamed than it was before. Actually I have a new spot on my forehead which was a tiny little dot size one and i rubbed it loads yesterday and kept touching it and now it's big so I deffo think is making my existing spots more irritated. My doctor said that this would probably happen so I guess I'm not too worried about it. Not been having any more side effects which is good!

I also just wanted to add that on my face I currently have 3 small spots on my left cheek, 3 small but a little inflamed spots on my right cheek, 3 under the skin ones on my chin which you can't really see but i also have some tiny little raised bumps on my chin which aren't inflamed at all but obviously don't look that nice in certain lights and then my forehead i have 5 spots however one of those is huge like an under the skin spot that i have had a week! I applied vicks vapour to it yesterday

DAY 2

Day 2 I woke up today with one new spot on my cheek like a small under the skin one which I never really get on my cheeks.  Other than that no new spots I don't think. However some existing ones which were tiny and should have been gone by now are much more inflamed!  My face is still really oily, iv heard it will take a few weeks before face produces less oil. For the under the skin spots I have got in the last few days I have been applying Vicks vaporub and it's really helping them go do

DAY 1

DAY1 Took it yesterday afternoon and have had one under the skin spot on my chin since taking it however not sure if this was related to dianette as it seems to early to make any difference yet. I have read that most people get an initial breakout in the first 3 months which I'm not looking forward to but hopefully it isn't too bad. I will post again tomorrow and try to pretty much every day onwards to share how my experience with how dianette is going and maybe help others who are also trying d
