diane 35 - desperately desperate

im a 16yr old girl and ive suffered from acne for as long as i can remember. i was recently given diane 35 by my doctor and was really excited to begin using it. i have been on it for just over 1 month now and have seen absoultely no change in my acne. i am really starting to lose hope. i practically cry myself to sleep every night. how long has it taken for other people to see results on diane?

I went on Diane when I was 17 and was on it for about 4 years. It did actually take about 3 months for me to start to see an improvement and about 6-9 months for my skin to be "clear". I have been off Diane for about three months now (for non acne related reasons) but have decided that I will go back on as my skin is starting to go back to breaking out in the chin area again. So anyway don't give up hope

Although Diane did help alot with the acne in my "hormonal" areas, chin and lower sides of face, I soon after began to get acne on my cheeks which in my case was not helped by the Diane but I have managed to conquer it with over the counter topicals and supplements...I have written about these in another post.

Good Luck and be patient (yes i know it's hard but at least try )

Re: diane 35

Hey,

My doctor just gave me a prescription for Diane - I haven't started taking it yet though. From what I read in the insert it can take anywhere from 3-6 months until you see results, so be patient.

One thing that I was wondering about though was is said not to use it primarily as birth control - does anyone know why? Is it as effective as other BC pills?

Re: diane 35

Its supposed to take up to 6 months to see results. 1 month isnt long enough to.
