Hi I have a query about the Pill.
I am on Melodene at the moment.
My dermatologist said that it was one of the lowest dosage pills available.
He also prescribed Androcure - for my skin.
I have heard of a new "micro pill" that is a very low dosage, is great for your skin and
also doesn't make you pick up weight.
Is this pill in South Africa yet? Do you know the name.
Is there any pill that you can recommend that is better than Melodene?

Rosie, Mirelle® and Minesse® are lower dose pills than Melodene, but I think the one you’re referring to is called Yasmin®. It has been launched overseas and should be launched in SA this year. Good luck.
