Red face Diane-35, acne and everything else

Hi Everyone,
I've been taking Diane-35 for 2 months now. It was precribed to me for acne problems, facial hair and hormone imbalance. Well, for the first 2 months, i noticed that my acne went down a bit. My doc also prescribed some facial tampons to apply to my faces after everywash (Clindets) and been using that as well for the past 2 months. For the past 3 weeks though, my skin started to break out like crazy. I got all those tiny little pimples all over my face and it's like i got millions of them, especially on my forehead, cheeks and chin.

Any one experience that taking Diane 35. Has anyone had a good or bad experience with D-35. Thank you all for your insights!

Me! :-)

I've been on it for 7 months and I'm completely clear. I had the very severe cystic type acne too. It takes 3-6 months to see results. Just be patient .

Diane-35 worked wonders for me for several years. Give it more time.

Well I have been on Diane for 3 months, and then my doc switched me to Estelle (same thing, cept Estelle gives placebo pills during the pill-free week)... and not much of a diff, I am still having zits. I'm into my 5th month already, and i am seriously wondering what could be the actual cause of my zits...

How long did it actually take you to clear up?

BrownSugar, You said you were taking it for several years and Im curious to know if it stopped working for you and if it did when did it stop working?

I have been on Diane for about 3.5 yrs now. I broke out very badly on it initially but it got better and totally cleared up my chin area but then after a couple of years I began to break out badly on my cheeks and a few on my chin again. I think it has begun to become less effective and am thinking of tryind Loette another BCP that's meant to be good for acne. I need the BCP for other reasons than acne otherwise I might think of going of it and seeing if it is really helping or not.
