I have been on dianette for 12 years. Now all I use is dove soap. You just need to be gentle. I broke out terribly for the first couple of months but then the transformation was amazing. Stick with it. It is so worth it!!

I'm on a 3 month corse then I am back to the dermatologist to see if it has helped then I think I was going to start roaccutane but now you have said that I want to keep on abit longer to see if it works, it's so horrible when you are breaking out cos I just don't have much hope

Yes I totally empathise with you. Most things get worse before they get better tho, roaccutane is the same. It's tough , but patience is needed!!  Keep posting. Interested to hear how you get on.

I am on Diane too, 3th month with one month break.

My skincare is so simple, I use Bioderma H20 sensibio micellar water to clean my face day and night, I take off my foundation with it too. Then wash my face with only warm water. 
I used to use an antibiotic lotion afterwards on my acne, It was a homemade one by a cosmetitian and I have no idea of the ingredients, it was white and smelled like alcohol but it helped me like crazy. Too bad now they stoped to made it and I started to use tea tree oil instead on my acne. It did not do wonders but it helped my acne to dry quickly and it made my skin texture better. 

I used to use more products and used to put moisturizer before bedtime but always woke up with huge new pimples so I decided to make my routine as simple as possible. No great revolutionary progress here but still is a movement. I plan on starting to use aloe vera. 
I rely mostly on the Diane and thats why I avoid to put additional products so they wont break me out more..

Did you find you go through phases of breakouts still over the 12 years? I have been on dianette for 5 years but the past month my skin has gone bad again although nothing has changed. Do you think I've built up an immunity or it's it's a phase? Really appreciate some help :(

No IndigoNumeric, I didn't have what you would call a break out again after the first 6 months. I would get the very occasional spot, but that was all. I don't know if you can develop an immunity. It's not like an antibiotic. Not sure though. 
You're not taking any other medication or vitamins/ supplements that could be affecting it are you? You haven't been ill/sick and/ or not taken your pills. If I forgot and missed even a few days pills I would start to get spottier, but then it would correct itself as soon as  I got back to my routine.
