Dianette to treat acne

How to buy Dianette online for acne without visiting your doctor

4.8 10 patient review(s) review

What is Dianette?

Dianette contains two active ingredients that have been shown to treat acne. It is usually prescribed to people with hormonally induced acne that have tried other methods such as antibiotics without success. The contraceptive element of Dianette helps users to regulate their periods and also reduce the symptoms of PMS.

How does Dianette work?

Dianette contains the active ingredients cyproterone acetate and ethinylestradiol. Cyproterone acetate is a synthetic progesterone that reduces the level of male hormones, working to combat the development of acne and abnormal hair growth known as hirsutism.

Cyproterone acetate works as an anti-androgen, meaning it’s a hormone that works against male sex hormones. When produced in high levels, these can cause the glands responsible for acne (sebum glands) to work overtime. When the sebum glands produce too much oil they can easily collect dead skin cells and dirt from the environment, causing blocked glands and leading to spots. When the glands become infected the infection can also spread to other areas of the face, causing further spots and infection.

Aside from the synthetic progesterone Dianette also contains an artificial oestrogen. This combination creates a hormone level like during pregnancy, so the body reacts to avoid a second pregnancy. This includes hindering the growth of a new egg and ovulation, as well as inhibiting a thickening of the womb lining, so a fertilised egg could not be lodged in for development. The process also thickens the cervical mucus, so sperm is unable to enter the womb.

How to take Dianette?

Before taking Dianette you should read the enclosed patient leaflet to ensure you have the most up to date information. The basic guidelines on how to take Dianette are as follows.

  1. Dianette comes in a strip pack of 21 pills which should be taken once a day for 21 days
  2. Once you have completed the pack you should then take a 7 day pill break to allow for menstruation
  3. The pills should be taken around the same time each day
  4. Swallow the pill whole with water
  5. You can take Dianette on an empty stomach or with food
  6. After seven days of not taking the pill you should start the next pack

If taken on the first day of your period, Dianette is generally effective as a contraceptive. You can also take Dianette up until the fifth day of bleeding; however you will have to wait seven days before you are completely protected against unwanted pregnancy. Once the course of treatment has finished, women wishing to continue using hormonal contraception have to change to another pill.

Dianette dosage

You can buy Dianette to treat acne symptoms in 2mg tablets. This medication can be bought at euroClinix in packs of 63 and 126.
