Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Dianette? 

Dianette is a contraceptive pill that contains an oestrogen and an anti-androgen used to prevent pregnancy and to treat skin conditions like acne, very oily skin, and excessive growth of hair among women of reproductive age.

With its nature of being a contraceptive, Dianette should only be prescribed by a doctor. 

It is only used as a treatment for skin conditions if the skin has not improved after the use of anti-acne treatments, such as topicals and antibiotics. Other hormonal contraceptives must not be taken if Dianette is being used for skin treatment.

How Does A Dianette Pill Work? 

Two types of female hormones are in a Dianette pill: oestrogen and an anti-androgen. Oestrogen is responsible for preventing the release of an egg from the ovaries, while the anti-androgen blocks the hormones that stimulate the grease glands in the skin and the growth of hair. 

What Benefits Will You Get From Taking Dianette? 

Unwanted pregnancy is prevented by using Dianette, but it is mainly used to help in treating skin issues, such as acne, very oily skin, and excessive growth of hair. 

Dianette reduces the number of androgens produced that stimulate the growth of hair and the grease glands of the skin. Too much production of androgen may lead to too much sebum in the grease glands that can cause acne when infected or blocked.

How To Use Dianette? 

Before you buy Dianette, a prescription from a doctor will be required. Users are advised to follow the instructions the doctor provides and to read the available patient information leaflet that comes with the medicine. It is also important to understand the benefits and risks of taking Dianette. Familiarize your doctor with any other medical problems or illnesses that you may have. Taking Dianette is prohibited if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. 

The box comes in strips of 21 pills with markings of the days of the week and arrows to guide the user of the pills. Start your first pill marked with the correct day of the week. (If you start on a Monday, then take the tablet on the first row marked “Mon”). Follow the direction of the arrows, taking one pill a day for 21 days.

Note: Swallow each tablet as a whole, drink water if necessary. 

For new users, take a Dianette pill on the first day of your next period. This will ensure you will have contraceptive protection with the first pill.

If you are taking a different pill and you want to switch to Dianette, you should start using Dianette on the next day after the end of your previous strip. This will ensure you will have contraceptive protection with the first pill.

Those who have just given birth and want to start Dianette, your doctor may advise you that Dianette can only be started 21 days after delivery, provided that you are fully mobile. For the first seven days of using the pill, you will need to use other forms of contraception such as a condom. 

Those who had a miscarriage or abortion are advised to consult your doctor in regard to taking Dianette.

Want To Know More About Dianette?

After you finish the 21 pills in the strip, you take a break for seven days with no pills. During this time, the contraceptive will still work if you have taken the pills correctly. After the seven days of no pills, you can begin with the next strip (on day 8). If your last pill from the previous strip was taken on a Thursday, then you should start the new strip on the following Friday. Make sure to start the new strip on time. You should have some withdrawal bleeding like a period during the break. You may proceed with the next strip even if the bleeding has not yet stopped.

Each Dianette tablet has an active ingredient of cyproterone acetate (2 mg) and ethinylestradiol (35 micrograms). One tablet should be taken at the same time every day for 21 days followed by a 7- day break. 

The effectiveness of the pill may be reduced if you miss a pill or if you start the strip late. If you missed one pill, take it immediately as soon as you remember. If you missed more than one pill or if you are late for the next strip for more than a day, the effectiveness of the contraceptive may be reduced. You may continue taking the most recently missed pill and leave the earlier missed pills. Use extra contraceptives such as a condom for seven days. 

The right dose of hormones from the Dianette contraceptive may not be absorbed by the body when you have other illnesses such as vomiting or if you have diarrhoea. If feeling sick within two hours of taking Dianette contraceptive, take another pill from a spare strip. Continue taking your pills if you can. Extra contraception should not be needed. 

If you want to delay your period, finish the current strip you are taking and then continue taking the new strip on the next day without the usual 7-day interval. 

Like other medicines, Dianette contraceptives can cause side effects that may vary per person. Serious side effects should be consulted immediately with your doctor. 

Common side effects include feeling sick, stomach ache, weight gain, headache, mood swings, sore or painful breasts. 

Some serious side effects that have been associated with the use of Dianette include severe depression, blood clot, severe allergic reaction, breast cancer, cervix cancer, and severe liver problems. 

Dianette is available online at True Medical. A prescription from a doctor is needed before the purchase of the product.
