    When I first went on the pill my skin got quite a bit worse for the first month or so then it went drastically better. I'd recommend staying on it for 3 months and seeing if therre's any difference - that's like the trial period for any brand of pill.

    Give it time, like most acne tablet treatments it will need up to three months to start showing improvements.. but from what i've seen they are drastic

    I know loads of girls who went on cilest for their skin and it cleared up no problem.. it gets worse before it gets better though i think

    I've been on Dianette for 2 and a bit years now and my skin is great. It was awful though, so happy now I have nice skin. I suggest you talk to your Dr. about it.
