Diane35 update - 2nd pack

Let's see....the first week (week after my period), my face looked great. I didn't get any new ones the entire week-it was heavenly. The 2nd week of the pack, I did breakout along my jawline, neck and chin. However, it was a mild to moderate breakout. Not severe like the past months. The worst place I broke out was my scalp. It really hurt. During the 3rd/last week of the pack, I got a few small whiteheads - it was no big deal. I even went to the grocery store with no makeup on. Haven't done that since I was pregnant! During this week, my off week, the same thing - just a few small whiteheads. I am very, very pleased with this bcp. My skin has a very even tone and the oil is almost gone. The oil in my hair is gone and I have been getting compliments on it. It now is full looking and has body to it because it's not weighted down from the oil. Anyway, that's about it in a nutshell. I still get some zits, but it is nothing compared to what I used to have. I didn't get any of what my derm called "deep nodules that never come to a head." I am looking forward to the upcoming months to see how much more I improve. Oh, I almost forgot, still no significant side effects other than I've lost 6 lbs. I'm not complaining! Good luck to everyone else!

Re: Diane35 update - 2nd pack

I am on my 8th month of Diane 35, and its done really good at clearingmy skin. I still get a few now and then, but no more cysts and nothing I cant handle. Its improved my skin by quite a bit. It can take up to a year for improvement in some people, do NOT expect things to happen quickly. I didnt notice a significant difference until my 6th month. Now things seem to be improving noticably. I havent had any side effects, except I will say lately, I have been losing alot of hair. Whether its related or not, and it could be, I dont know. Im going to try and add some vitamins to my routine to try and correct that and if it doesnt improve I will have to stop the Diane, and go back to Modicon instead for my bcp, which I would feel bad about since I feel Diane has been helping me. Good luck to you all.
