Hi, Thank you for the query. You don't need to be scared. i think you need evaluation for PCOS which is an important cause of both menstrual irregularity and androgen excess (Acne) in women. Diane 35 has Anti-androgenic effect, that's why your acne resolved and your cycle became proper. Discontinuing Diane 35 may cause irregular periods again. Hope this helps.
