What is Dianette?

Dianette is primarily an effective combined oral contraceptive said to be over 99% effective at protecting against pregnancy when used properly. This pill also features as a popular treatment for women suffering from severe acne and hirsutism (excessive facial hair) as well as providing an effective contraceptive cover up to 99%.

How do Dianette pills work?

For acne

One of the active ingredient in Dianette - cyproterone acetate, works as an anti-androgen. Androgens are usually seen as male hormones as they promote the growth of hair and skin, if there are excessive amounts in a woman then it can cause her sebaceous glands to produce more oil (sebum) than normal, resulting in acne. This ingredient counteracts that action, effectively clearing the appearance of mild to severe acne from the skin.

For contraception

This oral contraceptive prevents pregnancy in three ways[1]:

  • Firstly, it prevents ovulation from occurring, so no egg gets released for potential fertilisation
  • Secondly, it increases the thickness of the mucus in the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to navigate through the cervix.
  • Thirdly, it prevents the thickening of the womb lining so that an egg cannot grow.

For hirsutism

Women with a hypersensitivity to the androgen hormone, can find that they produce excessive facial hair or body hair. Because of the active cyproterone acetate ingredient preventing the overproduction of the androgen hormone, this pill reduces the amount of sebum produced, thereby reducing the overall amount of excessive facial or body hair growth leaving the user with better skin within a few months.

Without oral contraceptives With oral contraceptives Released egg Fallopian tube Ovary Endometrium
(uterus lining)
Cervix UTERUS VAGINA Oestrogen and Progesterone prevent eggs from being released from the ovaries. Progesterone causes thinning of the endometrium, which prevents implantation of a fertilized egg. Progesterone thickens the mucus in the cervix, preventing sperm from reaching eggs.

What are the benefits?

Like most oral contraceptive treatments, Dianette can provide you with immediate protection if taken on the first day of your menstrual cycle (period). It is over 99% effective when used properly and can also provide relief from menstrual cramps. Some women have also found it helpful in regulating their menstrual period.

How do you take Dianette pills?

Dianette is a 21 day monophasic pill; this means that you take a pill for 21 days of your menstrual cycle and then leave seven days when you will not take any Dianette pills. During these seven days you will still be protected against pregnancy. This contraceptive comes in calendar packs to help you track when to take your pill and when to stop. You should try and take Dianette at the same time each day, with or without food, so that you reduce the chance of you forgetting to take it.

Take on the first day of your period to get protection almost immediately. Take your Dianette oral contraceptive pill as close to the same time every day. This may help you get into a regular routine. Each Dianette pill should be swallowed with a drink, with or without food. Do not store above 25°C. Protect from light. Do not use your Dianette pill after the expiry date printed on the package.

What are the side effects?

Like most medications, there is a risk of side effects when using prescription medication such as Dianette. However, Dianette pills are generally well tolerated, and side effects are very rare, and if they do occur, they tend to be very mild. The most common side effects are:

  • Changes in menstrual bleeding
  • Menstrual spotting
  • Headaches
  • Upset stomach

Less common side effects tend to be:

  • Nausea
  • Breast tenderness
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Decreased libido
  • Gallstones
  • Increased blood pressure

Dianette pills have been known to sometimes affect your mood by causing mood swings or depression, in the rare case that depression does occur, it is important that you notify somebody close to you if you start experiencing any lasting behavioural changes.

Dianette interactions and precautions

Women over the age of 18 can order Dianette pills online for use if they require effective contraceptive cover but are also suffering from severe acne or hirsutism. Dianette pills are not suitable for use by all women and certain conditions may prevent the use of this contraceptive, in particular women who have a prior history of blood clots of diseases involving the blood. Other limitations that may prevent use include women who:

  • are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • are allergic to any of the active ingredients in Dianette
  • have heart or liver problems
  • have had a stroke
  • have high blood pressure
  • have high cholesterol or diabetes
  • are over the age of 35
  • suffer from unexplained bleeding
  • suffer from severe migraines
  • smoke and/or are overweight

If you suffer from any other medical condition or you are taking any type of supplements or medication, make sure to mention this in your consultation. Dianette slightly increases the risk of thrombosis (blood clot) therefore it is essential that you are aware of the symptoms for this, they include loss of breath, slurred speech, increased pain in the chest of legs, blurry vision or dizziness. Speak to your doctor immediately if you feel the Dianette pill may be affecting you negatively as a more suitable alternative may be available.
