Thank you for your advice to switch from femodene ed to diane - i will ask my doctor. I just have 2 more questions
1) Is diane safe to use as a contraceptive? I was under the impression that it is one of the weaker pills if u want to use it as a contraceptive aswell?
2) I did not gain any weight on femodene ed - is diane one of the pills that will make me gain weight?
Thank you

Dear Jen
It is safe to use as a contraceptive. It may cause slight weight gain- 2-3 kg's
