    I have been on this pill for 10 years and am just about to come off it ready for TTC in July.

    What id like to know is - did you loose any weight at all?

    I really feel this is to blame for my weight gain, i dont overeat, exercise plenty etc etc.

    Thanks :kiss:

    Nope, have not seen any weight loss, but I didn't feel that I had put any on with Dianette although so long ago, hard to remember x

    I often wondered that re: the weight also. I came off Dec 30th. Have lost about 3/4 lbs but I have been careful with what i eat since new years.
    I had my withdrawl bleed the follwing week and then got my period tuesday.
    My skin has already started getting bad, lots of little sore pimples and a couple on my back. my hair is much greasier too :cry:

    I started Dianette in 2008, and within three months I'd gained a stone! I came off it last Feb and since then have probably lost the weight I gained on dianette...but my skin has flared up a little (not as bad as it was before). I've heard prenatal vitamins are good for skin tho, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
