Contraception Pill

Patient

Q: Hi, Im 16 and i'm on dianette over a year now and I want to come off it. I'm supposed to start my next pack this evening so that's why i need to know what to do 2day. I've put on alot of weight while on dianette and am finding it hard to lose it! does this have anything to do with dianette? the reason i started on dianette was because I had very bad acne and it has cleared now but i'm afraid to come off dianette incase it comes back, i have read reviews saying that it has come back worse than ever so i really dont know what to do and also in some of the reviews many women have said that they haven't had there periods for months and this is also making me afraid to come off it!.. I'm not sure how to come off it either do you just stop taking it?
