Dianette is a hormonal combined contraceptive pill which is used to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
Dianette is known to be quite effective in protecting against unwanted pregnancies.
Women who wish to prevent an unwanted pregnancy can use Dianette. However, this medicine should not be used by women who are or who think they are already pregnant.
Dianette is a combined oral contraceptive pill. This medicine overrides the natural menstrual cycle. It contains two active ingredients – cyproterone and ethinylestradiol. Both these ingredients are synthetic versions of oestrogen and progesterone respectively. When a woman takes the pill, these synthetic hormones prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg and prevent a fertilised egg from implanting onto the wall of the uterus. They thus help prevent any unwanted pregnancies from occurring.
Diannete comes in the form of tablets which contain 2mg of cyproterone acetate and 35 micrograms of ethinylestradiol. The Dianette tablet should be taken once a day for 21 days, followed by a 7-day pill-free period. The tablet strip shall have days marked for each tablet. It is best to take this tablet at the same time every day to ensure that you do not skip a dose.
Dianette tablets should be started on the first day of your period in order to ensure complete protection from the very first pill. The tablets are inside packets which are clearly marked with days of the week, and you can take these tablets are per the marked instructions. You will need to take one tablet each day until you finish the entire pack.
After completing all the 21 tablets in the pack, you will be on a 7-day pill-free break. During this period, you will not have to take any pills. And you will begin the next set of 21 packs after this pill-free break.
