Dianette Contraceptive Pill

By: Rex Inego | Aug 15, 2005 11:47 AM

Diagnosed with polycystic ovaries at age 19. After years of depression, stress and embarrassment with chronic acne and unwanted hair (the side effects of PCO) I was put on Dianette.

Pros: It helped very quickly with the acne, much better than all the creams etc I'd been given, I only get the odd one now, like everybody else! It's helped a great deal with the unwanted hair, it's reduced it a lot and what's there is very fine and manageable. It's been an excellent contraceptive for me, no problems at all in 12 years. It also reduced the severity, length and heaviness of my periods, which was a relief!

cons: I've had to come off it twice and the benefits reversed very quickly. I basically begged my doctor to go back on it both times. When you first start taking it, the improvement in hair takes about a year, but believe me, it's worth the wait. There is no advice on over 35's taking it.

conclusion: An excellent contraceptive and if you have PCO, it's a god send. I'm dreading the day I ever have to come off it for good.
