I have been on diane35 for almost a year. I didnt start it for acne but for contraceptive use. However, it did make a great difference in my skin. All my friends use it also and love the results they have seen in their skin. Diane is a very strong drug and it does carry greater risk than some other pills (blood clot risk is much higher). If you do choose to continue taking it, just give it a chance and I am certain you will be pleased.
