Experience

I loved being on Dianette, no more heavy periods, clear skin, moods were fine. I took it from age 16 until age 33 which I wouldn’t recommend long term, only because of my experience with infertility now, I don’t know if it was caused by long term pill use but If I had all the information that I do now I probably wouldn’t take it for so long.
