Is there anyone who's been on D35 longer than four month?Any results??
: Thank you...
I have just started my 3rd package of Diane and frankly I could have written your post because I am so frustrated right now have seen no results and frankly I think it has gotten worse. This is suppose to be the best bcp for acne and yet it seems to be doing nothing. The only thing though is that in some of us it can take up to 3 to 6 months before our skin begins to clear so I don't know you might not want to give up just yet. I also think that if you go off of the pill there is a greater chance of making your skin worse since it will mess up your hormones even more. Please keep me posted as it seems as though you are about 2 months ahead of me and I am interested in hearing your progress. I am going to the doctor tomorrow and I will discuss all of this with her and let you know what I find out. Good luck.
If you want more info just on D35 you also might want to check out the hairsite website and messege board that has only D35 users.
