Description

Dianette as a Contraception

Contraceptive medications are used to prevent unwanted pregnancy and can also help to alleviate symptoms of menstruation. Dianette is a hormonal contraceptive used to prevent pregnancy and treat acne. Dianette has a strong success rate at preventing unwanted pregnancy and is often prescribed when traditional acne treatments have not been successful.  

What is Dianette and how does it work?

Dianette has two active ingredients; ethinylestradiol, a synthetic oestrogen and cyproterone, an anti-androgen. Androgens are the male hormones produced in some women, causing unwanted hair growth and oily skin. By reducing androgen, cyproterone reverses these effects. That's why it is often recommended to treat acne. Ethinylestradiol prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation, the release of an egg.

Is Dianette right for me?

If you are looking for an effective oral contraceptive, Dianette may be right for you. However, it may not be suitable for you if you have the following:

  • If you are allergic or hypersensitive to any of the ingredients in Dianette
  • If you have ever had a blood clot or are at risk of a blood clot
  • If you are using another hormonal contraceptive
  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding
  • If you have severe heart, liver or kidney problems
  • If you have high or low blood pressure
  • If you have ever had a migraine with aura

Dianette Contraceptive Pill for Acne

Dianette is a type of medication often prescribed for severe acne or hirsutism in women and is used as an oral contraceptive pill. It contains the active ingredients cyproterone acetate and ethinylestradiol. It must be used under the supervision of a healthcare provider.

What is Dianette?

Dianette is both a contraceptive pill and a medication used to treat severe acne and excessive hair growth (hirsutism) in women.

How does Dianette work?

Dianette works by suppressing the actions of androgens (male hormones) in the body. It contains two active ingredients, ethinylestradiol and cyproterone acetate. Cyproterone acetate is a type of medicine known as an anti-androgen, while ethinylestradiol is a synthetic version of oestrogen.

What are the benefits of taking Dianette?

In addition to preventing pregnancy, Dianette helps to treat severe acne and excessive hair growth (hirsutism) in women.

Dianette Dosage & Usage

How do I use Dianette?

A person is able to take one pill every day for 21 days, followed by a 7-day pill-free interval during which they might have a withdrawal bleed. After the 7-day break, the person starts the next pack. If unsure about how to take Dianette, consult a healthcare provider.

How long can I use Dianette?

The length of treatment varies from person to person and depends on the individual response to treatment. It's crucial to follow a healthcare provider's instructions regarding the duration of usage.

What is the proper dosage for Dianette?

The typical dosage for Dianette is one pill taken orally once daily. Always follow the guidance of a healthcare provider and the instructions provided with the medication.

Dianette Side Effects & Considerations

Like all medicines, Dianette potentially causes side effects, although not everybody gets them.

What are the side effects of Dianette?

Common side effects include mood changes, nausea, breast tenderness, and weight changes. More serious but rare side effects include blood clots, liver problems, and severe depression. If experiencing any worrying symptoms, contact a healthcare provider immediately.

What precautions should I take with Dianette?

It's important to disclose one's full medical history to a healthcare provider before starting Dianette, especially if one has a history of blood clots, liver disease, or certain types of cancer. Dianette may not be suitable for everyone, and a healthcare provider is able to advise on the matter.

Is Dianette safe?

Yes, when used correctly and under the supervision of a healthcare provider, Dianette is safe for most women. However, it might not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with certain health conditions.

Dianette Availability & Pricing

Dianette is available by prescription only.

Can I buy Dianette online?

Dianette is available for purchase online through registered pharmacies, but usually, a prescription is needed from a healthcare provider.

Can I get Dianette on a subscription?

A subscription to Dianette depends on the policies of the online pharmacy and the healthcare provider. It's best to check with them directly.

Dianette Alternatives

If Dianette is not suitable, there are other treatments available for acne, hirsutism and contraception.

What is the alternative to the Dianette pill?

There are several alternatives to Dianette for both contraception and acne/hirsutism treatment. Other combined oral contraceptives or different types of acne treatments may be appropriate. The best alternative depends on individual circumstances and health needs and must be discussed with a healthcare provider.

Dianette FAQs

Is Dianette a strong pill?

Yes, in some ways, Dianette might be considered a strong pill since it contains a higher dose of oestrogen (ethinylestradiol) compared to some other types of combined oral contraceptives. However, whether a pill is considered "strong" depends on a variety of factors, including how a person's body reacts to it.

What does the Dianette pill do?

Dianette works as a contraceptive by preventing ovulation and making it harder for sperm to reach an egg. It changes the lining of the womb to make it less likely for an egg to implant there. In terms of treating acne and hirsutism, Dianette works by reducing the amount of androgens in the body, which are hormones that increase oil production and hair growth.

What are the risks of Dianette?

As with all medications, Dianette carries certain risks. The risks include serious side effects such as blood clots, liver problems, and severe depression. It's important to discuss these risks with a healthcare provider before starting Dianette.

Is Dianette a good contraceptive pill?

Dianette is effective at preventing pregnancy when used correctly. However, it's typically used as a second-line treatment for women who need treatment for severe acne or hirsutism. Other contraceptive pills may be more suitable for women not requiring treatment for these conditions.
