I have just come off Dianette birth control after a year on it to control the oil levels on my skin. Big problem, after constant use for a year I think its given me a weird side effect which I never had before going on it. It gave me really long facial hair. The thing is... its also used to help that problem?!?!

I am so confussed here....It also made my skin sooo horrible and the oiliness never calmed down. Damn stuff is still in my system and I am still breaking out. Evil. Now I have been given Yasmin. Has it helped anyone??

THANKS for any replies x x x x :cry:

What do you mean by "just came off" of it? That stuff only stays in your system a couple days. If it's more than two or three days since you stopped the BC and then your acne/facial hair started flaring up, it's quite probable that the Dianette was what was keeping you clear and facial hair-free. (suggesting you have a hormonal imbalance).

Yasmin is great but it's very similar to Dianette.
