Diane 35 and hair growth


I have never had a problem with acne or facial hair till now...the acne is only mild and the hair is a small area on my chin...I guess it's not that much of a big deal, but for someone who is blonde and never had acne...the sudden appearance of pimples and dark hair on my chin are causing me concern. I saw my Dr who said it was a hormone imbalance and she prescribed Diane 35.

My qu. is has anyone had success with Diane 35 fixing excess facial hair caused by out of wack hormones? Also I saw a naturopath who said that the 'zone' diet and some herbal medication called 'gynoplex' would help the hormonal imbalance. Does anyone know about these?

thanks so much...Tink

Re: Diane 35 and hair growth

i was put on diane 35 about a year ago, and it did absolute wonders to my skin. i didn't have acne on my face (i had the occasional breakout as highschoolers usually do) but my upper back was always covered with acne (genetic trait passed down from my dad). After even a few months of being on diane 35 this acne went away and has never came back since, and i rarely ever get pimples anywhere now. im not sure about the hair growth though <IMG SRC=""> i haven't experienced that either on or off the drug, but i did notice that once i had been put on the drug for a while, my leg hair starting coming in finer. not sure if that counts.
good luck with diane....and don't worry if it doesn't work at first....if you don't get results after maybe 6 months (?? maybe a year??) then you probably just need a different dosage of hormones....there are other brands out there that do the same thing, just with different levels of the hormones...
good luck again

Re: Diane 35 and hair growth

Hi Queenwhit,

I just went on Diane 35 a few days ago. I don't really have acne but I do get the occasional breakout around my period. How long did it take you to see an improvement in your skin?
More importantly, did you gain any weight? Were there any other side effects? Thanks..
