    I'm just about to change to the dianette pill and was just wondering if anyone could tell me about their experience with it. I'm 18 and my acne isn't too bad it's just very persistent and nothing I've tried has ever cleared it up.

    An ex went on it for her skin. It helped for that but drastically reduced her libido. Some women get that with any combined pill, but the skin issues made it harder to switch to something else.

    Just to warn you: because it's often prescribed for skin issues, if you're over 18 you may get an eyebrow raised at the the chemists and while pills for contraception are free, ones for just skin issues aren't. But you're using it for contraception too...
