Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Diane 35 is a hormonal pill and saw palmetto and fenugreek is a herbal formulation and there is no known drug interaction in between the two so i guess you can use it together.Even the hormonal pills can cause breast enlargement as they have tendency to put on weight but the effect will be temporary and once you stop the pills the effect will go away.But all said and done still i would advise you to talk to your treating doctor before starting on with the saw palmetto.
Thanks

Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Well,fenugreek and saw palmetto are herbal food derivatives.They are supposed to have mastogenic effect in body(i.e. increasing breast size).Fenugreek has been used by nursing mothers to increase milk production also.Saw palmetto has been used for prostate enlargement,hair loss etc.
I don't think they should have any side effects while taking with Diane 35.But as far as effectiveness is concerned you have to believe yourself here and only time will tell about its effect.
I would like to know from you as to who has prescribed you this and where are you getting it from.

regards,
Dr.chawda

hi doctor I am a 28 year old female weighing 138lbs and 5ft 2 tall. I have had mild acne through out my teen years but nothing bad. About 2 years ago I started getting really bad acne on my forehead, my chin and around my nose,my dermatologist told me this was as a result of my excessive use of a topical steroid which was Hydrocortisone 1%.This I didn t understand since she was the one that prescribed for me.She changed all my medications and my face cleared up but kept breaking out around the same time every year after that, and each time a different explanation and a different set of medications both oral and topical.it came to a point where I stopped seeing her and started using St.Ives Apricot Blemish Control scrub along with a mild moisturizer. That worked for almost a year. A couple months ago I started having irregular periods and went to see my MD, he sent me for further test after ruling out I wasn t pregnant ,everything came back normal which lead him to the conclusion I have hormonal imbalance. He also told me that this could be a cause of my acne. he put me on Diane 35 as a log term treatment for my acne. But two days ago the area around my nose flared up with cystic looking painful pimples. I am so confused I don t know what to do ,I am literally scared to leave my house because they look so bad and even more scared to use anything on it. Please help me

Hello! So, I have been on Diane 35 for two months (after my gynecologyst prescribed it to me). It worked well, especially that I suffer from acne, the other thing is that I found out that Diane 35 is useful for breats enlarging, which is also good. But, nowadays, there is lots of noise about Diane 35 and there are articles abt some women who died because of it and it s no longer allowed to be sold as a contraceptive but only as an acne treatment . I went to another doctor today and she prescribed Gracial to me. She said it is like Diane 35. I feel bad about changing Diane 35 though, it was perfectly suitable, even if I took it only for two months, I had no side effects and my acne has been reduced. Should I go for this Gracial? and depending on your knowledge, is Gracial good? Thank you!

Hi, my doctor has prescribed Kojivit Gel for acne (to be used every night). I regularly wash my face using mild soaps. I am also taking Diane 35 for PCOS. However, the acne has not reduced. What could be the problem? Are there any other remedies for the acne?

I m an 80 yr. old male and have been on warfarin for years with no problems. P/T 2 days ago was 2.5. First and second urination today was bloody. Never had this problem before except as result of prostate cryosurgery in 2008, which was only temporary. Subsequent PSA tests were 0.05, 0.50 and 0.73. I m on no other presciption medications and very active (tennis). I take daily supplements of vitamin C, glucosamine w/msm, B-50 complex, and selenium. If it might be a factor, I did 3 hours of yard work yesterday, primarily involving pruning of rose bushes.
