    i am sure it will work for you, just hang in there. if it worked the first time around it suggests that your body responds to the hormones in dianette so it will do the same again! i also started taking slow relase high potency vit C tablets along with zinc. i dont know if it helps with acne but really helps to brighten up the skin. xxx

    hello to all users on here i have now started week 8 and i must say that i have seen an improvement in my skin recently. dont get me wrong i still get spots but they seem to be smaller, not as frequent and seem to disappear quicker than before. it would be nice to know how you all are getting on?xxx

  10. hello a bit of history to start. when i was 17 i developed acne. at 18 i started taking dianette which cleared up my skin within a few months even with a really greasy and unhealthy student diet. after a year i was recommended by my gyno to stop taking dianette as it was too strong. i was put on femodene which wasn’t as good as dianette but somewhat maintained my skin (plus my diet was healthier which may have contributed to the clearer complexion?) any way fast forward to now... my skin is
