Birth Control Board Index

So i took a trip to my doctors today to get something for my acne treatment and contraceptives. He prescribed me diane-35 for at least 6 months. I don't start taking it till the beginning of January (as that's when my next period is supposed to start).

After doing a lot of research, i've come across a plentiful amount of side effects. I've never taken any kind of birth control before so I won't have anything to compare this to. I know theres a lot of side effects for all birth control, but this one seems to have more with more severities. It has to be illegal in the United States for some reason right? (I live in Canada)

I do have mild to severe acne, which is why I'm guessing my doctor decided to prescribe me diane-35. My main concern is the migranes that seem to be associated to this drug. I have always suffered from migranes in the past and just recently stopped getting them, and am not sure if migranes or acne is worse.

I'm not to worried about the other side effects such as weight gain, mood swings, depression and so on, for I'm already deathly skinny and weight gain would do me good. Also have a positive outlook on life almost always, can't see depression and mood swings taking over my life. Although I guess it can happen to anyone, including myself.

I guess my question is has anyone taken this drug in a similar situation? Did it work out well or go horribly wrong? I know I won't know for sure if it'll work for me until I try it myself, but I have to know if I want to risk all this to get rid of my acne.

Lastly, I know it's a high dosage pill and really good for contraceptive, how long after taking the pill is unprotected sex safe? (as safe as it can be)

Sorry for the long post
Thank you ahead of time
