Dorin is a combined hormonal contraceptive intended for women used for the prevention of pregnancy (combined oral contraceptive, generally referred to as the “pill” in this leaflet). This medicine contains progesterone (dienogest) and estrogen (etynyloestradiol).
Clinical trials demonstrate that medicines containing etynyloestradiol and dienogest reduce the symptoms of acne in women in whom it is caused by an increased concentration of male hormones (called androgens).
Dorin is used:
- in the prevention of pregnancy;
- in the treatment of moderate acne in women in whom oral contraceptives are not contraindicated and appropriate topical treatment was ineffective
