I'm through with Diane-35!!!

Recommended Posts

I really really wanted to love this pill, but after being on it for 3 months, I decided I've had enough! I was getting cramping in my legs, the worst pms ever and I just when I thought I had gained weight, it turned out to be bloating which caused my belly to puff up like an air balloon. Did I mention it also killed the sex drive? Anyhow, I am back on Valette (I don't know the US equivalent) but I took this before and I loved it. It contains 30 micrograms of ethinylestradiol and 2 mgs. Dienogest. It kept my acne at bay after I had stopped accutane and I felt great on it.

Has anyone else swithced up?
