Im a 21 year old female suffering from cystic acne and alot of whiteheads. i am sick to death of feeling like crap because of the way my skin looks it may not be as severe as others, but it's bad enough to lower my self esteem to the point where i dont wanna go out in public and wish i could just be a hermit until my face is clear.
so i finally got the courage to see the doctor about my acne (which is big for me since im very self consious about my skin) the doctor prescribed me with the birth control Diane-35. I got home all excited that this pill seemed promising from what he was describing, but later found ALOT of negative reviews about it on this site. so i was torn whether or not to take it, but decided i would give it ago anyway, because i couldn't bare to look at my face anymore, So that was that.
I started on May 1st so ive have only been on diane for 9 days so there is not alot to report yet. I will say though that I have broken out like mad in the last week with little whiteheads and a few cysts.. which is great! i did expect to get an initial break out though so i was prepered for that, i just hope that doesnt continue for weeks on end!
I hope to update my blog every few days, even if there isn't much to report. it will be good for me to look back and see any changes, and for others to read if they wish to i noticed that there isn't many posts about Diane-35 ( or diannete) on this site so i thought i would write about my experience.
