I also live in Canada and am about to start taking Diane 35. My doctor told me
it is an acne medication and is NOT being published as a birth control pill, but it IS a birth control pill. I have some mild acne and also needed to change my pill, so she suggested Diane 35 to cover both areas. She told me you
may have bleeding the first three months and breast tenderness, but that should be gone after the third month. If you experience bleeding after the third month, she told me to return and see her. I have yet to start taking Diane 35, so this is all I can tell you, basically what my doctor has told me. Hope it
helps. Also, women can get pregnant on any pill. If the pill doesn't have the
right amount of estrogen and progesterone, anyone is suceptable to get pregnant. If you are having continuous spotting a week before or a week after
your period, the hormone level is obviously off and the pill will not be to its
full effect. Just thought I would say this for the ones that are blaiming Diane 35 for their pregnancy. Maybe it just wasn't the right pill for your


>>  I live in Canada and have recently started taking Diane 35 for my acne. I've noticed a great improvement in my skin and I love it! I only have one this a birth control pill? My doctor (dermatologist) said that it was but the leaflet that came with the pills didn't say anything about it being a contraceptive. I am already the parent of a wonderful 20 month old son and my husband and I aren't ready for another yet! We have been using condoms along with the pill but do we have to keep using them every time? If any one has some factual "doctor type" information on this please e-mail me with the subject "Diane 35".
