My doctor wouldnt prescribe me Diane because it isnt sufficient at controlling birth..it really only helps with acne. It also has bad side effects such as blood clot.

I ended up being prescribed Ortho Tricyclen...after being on Alesse and having that do nothing.

So far ive only been on it for 2 weeks so hard to say if its good.

I have Diane 35 and it's working well for me.

Not efficient birth control? Surely that can't be true. That's why my doctor prescribed it to me... as birth control :eh:
