Brief Answer:
Keep taking pills

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, Thanks for writing to us with our health concerns.
Nothing to worry you can continue taking Diane as before.
But as regards erosion you should get a Pap smear and a cautery at the earliest.
Acne and polycystic ovaries will improve on these pills.
All the best
