Dianette

Dianette is an effective contraceptive containing two active ingredients. Cyproterone acetate is a derivative of progesterone, and ethinyl estradiol is a synthetic counterpart of the female hormone – oestrogen.

The use of Dianette contraceptive pills prevents the maturation and release of egg cells from the ovaries, as well as increases the density of the mucus, making it difficult for sperm to migrate from the vagina to the uterus. The pill also affects the level of blood flow in the uterus wall, which creates unfavourable conditions for the implementation of fertilised ova.

What are the benefits of using Dianette contraceptive pills?

Dianette hormonal pills are a pharmaceutical treatment with a wide range of use. It is recommended not only to take the tablets as contraception, but also as a formulation stabilising the levels of hormones in the body. This makes it an ideal solution for women who suffer from severe acne that has not responded well to antibiotic treatment.

Dianette pills also allow you to overcome hirsutism resulting from excessive production of male sex hormones. You should discontinue treatment with the use of Dianette as a medication against acne and hirsutism after observing a significant improvement in your skin condition, which usually occurs after 3-4 months. If problems with acne or excessive hair reappear, the treatment can be repeated.

Taking Dianette contraceptive pills is not fundamentally different from the use of other hormonal birth control pills. Dianette should be taken for 21 days of the cycle, and then a seven-day hiatus should be taken, during which time there may appear bleeding similar to a typical menstruation. Since the tablets are sold in calendar-orientated packaging, no woman should find it difficult to remember when she should take the next dose in order to maintain the desired level of fertility.

How do Dianette contraceptive pills work?

Dianette pills belong to the group of two-component contraceptive pills with a fixed amount of hormones in each tablet. The pills should be taken daily for 21 days, and then you should have a seven-day break. During this period there may – but do not have to – appear symptoms characteristic of menstruation, which should not be considered anything unusual. During the week of not taking the contraceptive pill the level of protection against unwanted pregnancy is preserved, provided no tablet has been missed in the given cycle. Since Dianette contraceptive pills are packed in a way where consecutive days of the cycle have been clearly indicated, going back to taking the tablets at the right moment should not pose any problems.

Dianette hormonal pills contain the two most commonly used active contraceptive ingredients, i.e. cyproterone acetate and ethinyl estradiol. The first of these components belongs to the group of antiandrogen drugs. Androgens are male sex hormones produced by both sexes, which stimulate skin, sebaceous glands and hair growth. In a properly functioning female body, the levels of these hormones are naturally regulated, and they should not lead to the appearance of facial hair characteristic of men. Furthermore, excessive production of sebum can lead to the blocking of the sebaceous glands, which can cause inflammation of the skin and severe acne. Both of these symptoms are common in women suffering from the so-called polycystic ovarian syndrome which affects 10-15 % of women in their reproductive years. Cyproterone acetate included in these pills stops the overproduction of androgens, and thus leads to a significant improvement in the condition of the skin.

However, it should be borne in mind that the effects will appear no sooner than within a few weeks of starting to take Dianette hormonal pills, as the stabilisation of hormone levels must not be performed in a radical way, and only successive provision of the sebum-blocking factor will bring a noticeable improvement.

How should Dianette pills be used?

The pills should be taken daily for 21 days, and then you should have a seven-day break. During this period there may – but do not have to – appear symptoms characteristic of menstruation, which should not be considered anything unusual. During the week of not taking the contraceptive pill the level of protection against unwanted pregnancy is preserved, provided no tablet has been missed in the given cycle. Since Dianette contraceptive pills are packed in a way where consecutive days of the cycle have been clearly indicated, going back to taking the tablets at the right moment should not pose any problems.

If you forget to take your Dianette pill, or start a new pack a day late, take the omitted tablet as soon as possible and continue with normal dosing according to the calendar cycle. This way you will not reduce the level of contraception and will not have to use additional forms of protection.

If you miss two pills, or start a new pack with a two-day delay, the level of contraception has been disturbed and you should abstain from having sex without additional contraception. Take the last missed pill as soon as possible and continue the treatment in accordance with the calendar cycle, but remember that for the next 7 days you and/or your partner will have to use additional protection, e.g. condoms.
