Dianette Contraceptive Pill

By: Rex Inego | May 30, 2006 01:58 PM

Diagnosed with PCO aged 21, Dianette used with Roaccutane acne treatment for 2 years and no problems at all. Advised to come off as 'dangerous', not even sure now after 12 months what the dangers are, over and above long term use of most medication. Tried Mercillon, Marvillon and Cilest, all terrible but Cilest was the worst with very severe lower leg cramps. Begged to go back on due to acne returning aged 30 and plan to stay on as long as possible, 5 years I am told at this stage.

Pros: All good really, although last 6 months on it I had break through bleeding, which after a break I hope will not happen again. Skin quality excellent and self esteem after years of acne excellent.

cons: Break through bleeing after 4 years continual use.

conclusion: 12 months of trial and error has taught me that Dianette isn't as harsh as others available, Cilest was terrible, others just problematic. Wish I hadn't been scared off by doctors but given realistic advice. Intend to stay on as long as possible, with breaks to have children, although concerned about spots when I do.
