I'm new on here and need to know an important question. I have been on the depo before and then because of my bad skin I was recommended dianette as a contreceptive and a cure for my skin. I found it was brilliant (sometimes bad moods though) and really cleared my skin up. After 5 months the doctor wouldn't prescribe me it anymore (don't understand why) so I stopped taking them and went back on the depo for contreceptive and to stop my periods as I have a holiday coming up and mine are very heavy and last about a week and a half. I started to notice that my skin became very dry and I started breaking out. After about 2 weeks after being off the dianette my skin was awful and I didn't hardly leave the house. I knew I needed to go back on it so bought a 3 month prescription of dianette from a medical website. I have started taking them again but I'm still on the depo. I need to know desperately if this is going to be damagaing or dangerous in anyway. I've already started experiencing stomach pains. If any one could help that would be very helpful.
