Dianette FAQs

What are the benefits of using Dianette pills?

Dianette contraceptive pills, just like other variants of the pill, provide you with immediate contraceptive cover if taken on the first day of your period. Each Dianette pill is taken once a day, making it a very convenient way to protect against pregnancy. The ingredients present in this oral contraceptive have an anti-androgenic effect, which is why it is so effective in treating acne and excessive hair growth in women.

How do Dianette pills work?

Dianette contraceptive pills contain both artificial oestrogen as well as progestogen. These hormones act in a natural way to make your body think that ovulation has already occurred, so your body doesn't prepare itself to receive a newly released egg. It also works by making sure the womb lining doesn't thicken and an egg never gets released. It also thickens the cervical mucus so sperm is unable to enter the womb.

Who can take it?

You can buy Dianette online after taking a free online consultation if you are over 18 and want to use it for contraceptive purposes.

Who cannot take it?

You should not use Dianette tablets if you are pregnant, think you are pregnant or if you are breastfeeding. Additionally, if you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, a history of stroke, circulation problems or if you are over 35 and smoking, it is not recommended that you take it.

How do you take it?

Oral contraceptives in general are effective immediately if you take it on the first day of your period. 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. Dianette pills should be taken for 21 days of your 28 day cycle, followed by a seven-day pill-free period during which you will have complete protection. During the seven day break, you will experience bleeding similar to your period, known as a withdrawal bleed. You won't experience your period like normal because you aren't ovulating, which means that you won't experience as much pain or discomfort.

What are the side effects?

Dianette pills may cause side effects in women who are sensitive to the active ingredients cyproterone acetate and ethinylestradiol. However, they are usually mild in nature and will pass as soon as your body becomes accustomed to the hormones. If the side effects do not disappear, it is advised that you change to a different contraceptive pill. The most common Dianette side effects include changes in menstrual bleeding, menstrual spotting, headaches, upset stomach, nausea, breast tenderness, weight changes and a decreased sex drive.
