Dianette is an oral contraceptive that is prescribed to women with severe acne which doesn't respond to a course of antibiotics, and to those with severe hirsutism (excessive hair growth).
Using Dianette solely as a form of contraception is strongly contested as there are other combined oral pills that have less severe side effects.
It's important to speak to your doctor before taking Dianette to ensure that it's right for you.
Anti-androgens (cyproterone acetate) in Dianette can inhibit the production of sebum - a natural oil in the skin attributed to hair growth.
It is effective in preventing the development of bacteria and infection, which are known to cause acne.
Like other combined contraceptive pills, Dianette is taken in a single dose once a day for 21 days followed by a 7 day hiatus. During this gap, you should experience a period.
On the eighth day, regardless of whether you are still bleeding or not, you continue the pack.
