Dianette for Acne

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.

What is Dianette for acne?

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.

How do you take Dianette for 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.

While Dianette can prevent pregnancy, it does not prevent sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia or HIV. You should use a secondary form of contraceptive such as condoms for protection against STI's.

The difference between taking Dianette for acne and taking it purely as contraception is that once your acne has cleared up, it is advised to switch to another form of contraception due to the risks of prolonged use.

What are the side effects of using Dianette for acne?

Just like any medicine, Dianette poses some risk. Specifically, Dianette slightly increases the risk of blood clots. It is important to understand the risks of the medication you are taking to identify any symptoms that may need medical intervention.

Side effects of Dianette may include:

  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Headache
  • Depressive moods or mood swings
  • Tender breasts
  • Change in sex drive
  • Enlargement of the breasts
  • Rashes
  • Vaginal or breast discharge
  • Venous blood clot

If you experience one or more of these side effects, speak to your GP or pharmacist. You may be advised to stop taking it and will have to use alternative contraceptive methods such as condoms.

Risk of blood clots

Blood clots can pose serious risks to your health and could lead to heart attacks or strokes. It is crucial that you are aware of the risks of blood clots associated with Dianette.

Dianette increases the risk of blood clots in those who are susceptible. You are at a higher risk to blood clots while using Dianette if you:

  • Smoke
  • Have a history of blood clots in your family
  • Are overweight
  • Are undergoing surgery in the near future
  • Have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Have recently had a baby
  • Have a high cholesterol
  • Have heart problems
  • Have diabetes
  • Have systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Have sickle cell disease

If any of these apply to you, speak to your doctor, who may advise you to stop taking Dianette.
