Hello Rain,

Diane 35 is an oral birth control medication which is also used to treat acne. This birth control pill is available in Europe, Asia and Canada. It is not available in the United States.

My research confirmed that you usually starts taking this pill on the first day of menstrual bleeding.

Please consult your physician who prescribed Diane 25 and ask how you should proceed taking the remaining pills. Ask if by starting the pills later than you should have, will you be protected against pregnancy by having sexual intercourse on December 18.
