Our expert says:
You can use Diane as contraceptive and for acne. Low dose pills are not less effective than high dose ones. Minerva is fine to use and if it worked well for you maybe you should go back on it then. Most contraceptives will cause weight gain of 3-4 kg but after that it stabilizes (normally). Much of this could be fluid retention.
I won't use contraceptives with esterogen levels higher than those in Nordette and Triphasil as high esterogen level pills have the risk of causing deep vein thrombosis and can cause breast problems.
