Who Should Not Take Dianette?

Dianette is not recommended for women under the age of 18, over the age of 50, or women over the age of 35 who are heavy smokers. In addition, Dianette should not be used by women who are pregnant or breast feeding, those with liver problems, severe diabetes, abnormal vaginal bleeding, high or low blood pressure, high cholesterol, circulation problems or a history of strokes.

How To Take Dianette

Dianette is manufactured in a 2mg/35mcg dosage, which means that each tablet contains 2mg cyproterone acetate and 35mcg ethinylestradiol. You should take the contraceptive pill for 21 days of your 28 day menstrual cycle and the packaging of these pills features days of the week to help you with this.

Ideally, you should begin taking the pill on the first day of your menstrual cycle, which is the first day of bleeding. Then, continue to take one tablet at approximately the same time every day until you have taken all 21 doses.

If you miss a single dose of the medicine (ie. one day), take the missed tablet as soon as possible and then resume your normal dosage from the next day. If you miss any more than one dose, you should take your last missed dose immediately and then resume taking Dianette, although you will not be protected against pregnancy for the next seven days.

Dianette Side Effects

Whilst you may encounter some side effects whilst taking Dianette, these tend to be mild and often disappear as you continue to take the pill. The most common side effects can include weight changes, headaches, enlarged or tender breasts and nausea. If you are concerned about any side effects, or if they become severe, please contact your doctor.
