Experience

Started on Dianette to help with bad acne. My doctor took me off Dianette due to DVT risk and put me on this as a replacement, works just as well. Slight loss of sex drive but not enough to make a massive difference, needed to use lube more often though whereas before hardly ever needed it.

Experience after taking

Acne got worse as I was taking the pill to combat this. My periods are always irregular without medication as I have PCOS.
