i was on diane for over a year and it cleared me up a lot but not completely, then she added an antibiotic and i was pretty clear so i came off the diane thinking id be fine, but no, your hormones go back screwy the way they were before so yeah skin got bad again after a couple months...

if it didnt help ur skin at all though maybe you wont notice the difference cause youve already got acne still there.

im going back on diane now cause it has sucked having bad skin again for the past year since ive been off it.

Hi there,

it's been a while since I was on diane bcp....but I remember when I came off that I had a bit of hair thinning and years later acne returned (but more due to emotional traumas).

I was on diane(tte) for about 6 months, off it for spiro for about 6 months, and now I'm starting diane(tte) again.

I don't know whether it was the combo of being suddenly off birth control and onto spirolactone, but my face was the worst it had ever been during that time.

Now I'm back on diane and my acne is fading away already, not even finished the first pack.

I have no idea what I'm going to do after this, you're not really supposed to be on diane for long periods of time. DX

Final answer: Life for me without diane is bad. But mood swings and tenderness also suck.

I wish you luck. ^^
