Hello Anonymous,

Are you aware that Diane-35 is approved only as therapy for androgen-sensitive skin conditions, including hirsutism and severe acne unresponsive to oral antibiotic therapy?

According to an article which appeared in the February 18, 2003 issue of the medical journal, CMAJ.JAMC, " However, many physicians may be unaware of concerns about the drug's safety profile3 and the fact that it is not approved for use solely as an oral contraceptive.4 The UK Committee on the Safety of Medicines recently issued a warning on the drug's risk of venous thromboembolism,5 which was repeated verbatim by Health Canada in late December 2002.

Diane-35 should be reserved for temporary use in women with serious acne and should not be used solely as an oral contraceptive. All women who use combination oral contraceptives are at risk of venous thromboembolism and should be informed of this rare but potentially serious adverse effect, particularly if they are taking Diane-35. Clearly caution, and not panic, is warranted. "

You should consider a different oral contraceptive.
