Experience

I really loved being on Dianette but when I was diagnosed with a blood clot in my spleen the doctors ruled out everything except my pill. I cannot be put back on it but because I have PCOS my pill was managing my skin issues. My cystic acne has now returned but having a blood clot was very scary and painful so it’s the best alternative. Besides the clot, dianette suited me!

My skin has definitely gotten worse because I have PCOS. My periods have returned which I am surprised at due to my condition. Sex drove has dipped
