Experience

If you are suffering with acne this is the BEST pill you can use to get rid of it. Dianette is the only pill that contains Cyproterone, an anti-androgen which prevents overproduction of sebum. This means this pill reduces the amount of oil/sebum your skin produces and therefore banishes acne! My severe acne disappeared in 4 months with this pill only, after trying everything. I highly highly recommend this pill. Also please note, if you ask for this pill from your doctor/gp they may try and give you Yasmin or Lucette. They will tell you it’s the same thing just cheaper; this is not true. They do not have the active ingredient that reduces oil production! Stand your ground and make sure you get Dianette.

Experience after taking

I changed pill to Yasmin as I didn’t need to improve my skin anymore and Lucette is a high risk pill. Therefore I can’t talk about my experience after as these may be a result of my current pill.
