If Minerva hasn't worked, the other pills aren't likely to. The skin problem may not be hormonal, in which case you should see a dermatologist.

Minerva is the generic for Diane-35. Rather ask your gynae...

Hi there

I went on Diana to help with my skin problems and it really helped and I did not experience any side effects.

Triphasal is a very 'old' pill - has been around for a long time and has quite high dosages of hormones. Modern pills are more advanced and has lower dosages which still do the trick. Try Diane.

I beleive Diane is the best and usually given for young women and skin problems. Yasmin is also good though and you may need to give it time to work in your system. I would not try triphasil as I believe it has a lot of other side effects.
