Weren't you supposed to use the inactive pills of the Diane35 after taking the last active pill from your last Trust Pills pack? Your period should not begin until you have a week off the pill or take the inactive pills (depending on whether or not you have a 21 day pill pack or 28 day pill pack.)

I'm not sure about Diane 35 you might be right now I think about it I'm not sure if it's legal in the states or not, but I think there are similar types (they have in them cyproterone acetate so you could look up what other pills have them), I have heard of Dianette, and the one you were put on before Ortho Try Cyclin is also used to treat acne.

I've been on Diane-35, it works very well, and yes it's also used to treat acne. I only switched because I needed a cheaper one.

Did you take the sugar pills? If not then wait until you go onto those, the white/inactive pills, because you will not get your period until you stop taking the active pills...

If you did take the sugar/white/inactive pills for their course and still missed your period, that could be due to a few different reasons that are not necessarily pregnancy, such as stress, some changes in your body, or simply changing the pill.
