Diane-35® Dosage Information
  • Typical dosage recommendations

    Diane-35® birth control medication should be taken once a day, every day. When starting to take Diane-35®, you should take the first on the first day of your menstrual cycle. That means the day when your period begins. I some cases your doctor might recommend that you start taking Diane-35® on the first Sunday after the menstrual cycle begins. The most important thing is to make sure that you take the pill once a day, at the same time every day. Taking Diane-35® at the same time every day ensures that the added hormone levels in the blood stay steady throughout the month. It also means there’s less chance of forgetting to take a dose!

    Work your way round the strip of tablets so you can track your compliance easily. If you do skip a dose then consult with your doctor or the Diane-35® instructions found in the packet insert. Being late for a dose or forgetting it altogether can result in pregnancy.

    Always keep a ready stock of Diane-35® in your medicine cabinet in case of missed doses or emergency.

  • Missing a dose
    Diane-35® is only 99% effective in preventing pregnancy if taken every day as prescribed. When you miss a pill, it may increase your chances of pregnancy. If you miss a dose by mistake you should take 2 pills on the same day. Take the missed dose immediately and the next dose as planned. Then continue the daily Diane-35® dosage schedule as planned. The same process can be followed if you miss two pills on two separate days. Take the missing two pills immediately and the third pill as planned. If you miss 3 doses in a row then it’s better to throw away the pack and start again using a new pack. Always use a supplementary birth control method like condoms, spermicides etc when you miss even one dose to avoid becoming pregnant.
  • Overdosing
    Always consult with your doctor if you miss a dose of Diane-35®, especially if it happens more than once in the same month. Taking multiple doses of Diane-35® at the same time when you make up for missed doses, can result on overdosing. This is especially true if you miss doses more than once in a month. If you feel that you may have overdosed on Diane-35®, contact your doctor immediately. Diane-35® overdose symptoms include nausea, vomiting, extreme stomach pain and vaginal bleeding.
Diane-35® Side Effects

Like all medications and methods of birth control, Diane® can cause side effects. Some Diane® side effects are unpleasant and uncomfortable but are not serious.
