The Best Contraceptive Pill Dianette Online

You should consider the best contraceptive pill dianette online when other contraceptives are bothering you with acne or hair loss.

What is Dianette Used For?

A common question we get is what is dianette used for?

It can be used to treat skin conditions such as acne, very oily skin and excessive hair growth in women of reproductive age.

Dianette does have contraceptive properties and because of that it should only be prescribed if your doctor considers that treatment with a hormonal contraceptive is appropriate. Also, it should only be taken if any skin conditions haven’t responded or improved when using other anti-acne treatments.

Furthermore, Dianette can also be used to treat women who are experiencing the symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) as it can help with regulating periods.

For more information refer to your patient information leaflet and look under the section of ‘What is Dianette used for?’

Dianette Contraceptive Pill

The Dianette Contraceptive pill is a 21 days pill. It is taken each day for 21 days, followed by seven days when you take no pills. Using dianette contraceptive pill will not protect you from sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia or HIV.

It should only be taken as directed to prevent pregnancy.

Dianette For Acne

Dianette for acne contains two ingredients called Cyproterone acetate and ethinylestradiol. Cyproterone acetate is a medicine called an anti-androgen. Androgens are male sex hormones that stimulate the growth of skin, including sebaceous glands that produce oil (sebum), and the hair that grows from the skin.

Cyproterone works by reducing the production and actions of androgens and as a result, reduces the production of sebum and stops excessive hair growth.

The skin should become less greasy/oily within a couple of weeks of taking Dianette for acne. It may also take up to three months of Dianette treatment before any definite improvement can be seen.

How to Take Dianette

A guide on how to take Dianette.

A pack of Dianette contains one memo strip of 21 tablets or three memo strips of 21 tablets. The memo strip helps you remember when to take your pill.

The pack is marked with a day of the week on which each pill should be taken. Following the direction of the arrow printed on the pack you should take one pill each day for the next 21 days until the strip is empty.

You then have seven days when you do not take a pull. During those seven pill-free days, on day two or three, you’ll have menstruation like withdrawal bleeding.

Start the next strip on the eighth day (following the seven pill-free days) – even if the bleeding has not yet ended. As long as you take Dianette correctly, you will always start each new strip on the same day of the week, and you will always have your monthly period on the same on the month.

For more information on how to take Dianette, please check the patient information leaflet included with the box.

Dianette Contraceptive Pill Effectiveness

Dianette Contraceptive Pill Effectiveness can be very effective or not depending on how the individual reacts to treatment. Acne improvement can take anywhere between weeks to months, varying from person to person.

How to Use Dianette

Dianette comes in strips of 21 pills, each marked with a day of the week.

  • Take your Dianette pill at the same time every day.
  • Start by taking a pill marked with the correct day of the week.
  • Follow the direction of the arrows on the strip. Take one pill each day, until you have finished all 21 pills.
  • Swallow each Dianette pill whole, with water if necessary. Do not chew the pill.

Then have seven pill-free days

After you have taken all 21 pills in the strip, you have seven days when you take no pills.

Within a few days of taking the last pill from the strip, you should have a withdrawal bleed like a period. This bleed may not have finished when it is time to start your next strip of pills.

You don’t need to use extra contraception during these seven pill-free days – as long as you have taken your pills correctly and start the next strip of pills on time.

Combined oral contraceptive

The combined oral contraceptive pill is usually just called “the pill”. It contains the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries.
The Combined pill is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.

The usual way to take the pill is to take one every day for 21 days, then stop for seven days, and during this week you have a period-type bleed. You start taking the pill again after seven days.
You need to take the pill at around the same time every day. You could get pregnant if you don’t do this, or if you miss a pill, or vomit or have severe diarrhoea.

Some medicines may make the pill less effective. Check with your doctor if you’re taking any other tablets.
If you have heavy periods or painful periods, PMS (premenstrual syndrome) or endometriosis the combined pill may help.

The pill does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), so using a condom as well will help to protect you against STIs.

How the combined pill works

1) prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg each month (ovulation).
2)thickens the mucus in the neck of the womb, so it is harder for sperm to penetrate the womb and reach an egg
3)thins the lining of the womb, so there is less chance of a fertilised egg implanting into the womb and being able to grow

There are many different brands of pill, made up of three main types:

Monophasic 21-day pills
This is the most common type. Each pill has the same amount of hormone in it. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Microgynon, Marvelon, Yasmin and Cilest are examples of this type of pill.

Phasic 21-day pills
Phasic pills contain two or three sections of different coloured pills in a pack. Each section contains a different amount of hormones. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Phasic pills need to be taken in the right order. Logynon is an example of this type of pill.

Every day (ED) pills
There are 21 active pills and seven inactive (dummy) pills in a pack. The two types of pill look different. One pill is taken each day for 28 days with no break between packets of pills. Every day pills need to be taken in the right order. Microgynon ED is an example of this type of pill.

Follow the instructions that come with your packet. If you have any questions, ask your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.

What to do if you miss a pill

If you continue to be sick, keep using another form of contraception until you’ve taken the pill again for seven days without vomiting.

Who can use the combined pill

If there are no medical reasons why you cannot take the pill, and you don’t smoke, you can take the pill until your menopause. However, the pill is not suitable for all women. To find out whether the pill is right for you, talk to your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.

You should not take the pill if you:

are pregnant
smoke and are 35 or older
stopped smoking less than a year ago and are 35 or older
are very overweight
take certain medicines (ask your GP or a health professional at a contraception clinic about this)

You should also not take the pill if you have (or have had):

thrombosis (a blood clot) in a vein, for example in your leg or lungs
stroke or any other disease that narrows the arteries
anyone in your close family having a blood clot under the age of 45
a heart abnormality or heart disease, including high blood pressure
severe migraines, especially with aura (warning symptoms)
breast cancer
disease of the gallbladder or liver
diabetes with complications or diabetes for the past 20 years

Risks of taking the combined pill

There are some risks associated with using the combined contraceptive pill. However, these risks are small and, for most women, the benefits of the pill outweigh the risks.

Blood clots
The oestrogen in the pill may cause your blood to clot more readily. If a blood clot develops, it could cause:

deep vein thrombosis (clot in your leg)
pulmonary embolus (clot in your lung)
heart attack
The risk of getting a blood clot is very small, but your doctor will check if you have certain risk factors that before prescribing the pill.

The pill can be taken with caution if you have one of the risk factors below. It is unlikely you would be advised to take it if you have two or more risk factors.
These include:

being 35 years old or over
being a smoker or having quit smoking in the past year
being very overweight (in women with a BMI of 35 or over, the risks of using the pill usually outweigh the benefits)
having migraines (you should not take the pill if you have severe or regular migraine attacks, especially if you get aura or a warning sign before an attack)
having high blood pressure
having had a blood clot or stroke in the past
having a close relative who had a blood clot when they were younger than 45
being immobile for a long time – for example, in a wheelchair or with a leg in plaster
Research is ongoing into the link between breast cancer and the pill. Research suggests that users of all types of hormonal contraception have a slightly higher chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared with women who do not use them. However, 10 years after you stop taking the pill, your risk of breast cancer goes back to normal.

Research has also suggested a link between the pill and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a rare form of liver cancer. However, the pill does offer some protection against developing womb (endometrial) cancer, ovarian cancer and colon cancer.
