Acne board


I've been taking Diane for about 7 months to stop my hormonal acne outbreaks and so far so good. I didn't get an initial breakout. It actually stopped one that had started! And it has really helped settle my mood swings and crying fits around the time of my period.

I still get the occasional cyst on my cheek but they are few and far between and I can handle that as long as I don't breakout again.

It is a fair bit more expensive than my previous pill Levlen (cheaper brand of Microgynon) but it is worth the extra $ just to keep my skin clear. Now I just want to have the confidence to stop wearing makeup. But that is not likely to happen anytime soon.
