Experience

After taking POP for close to 4 years (due to migraines when last on combined pill), I decided to change to a combined pill (with lower estrogen to combat migraines) to try and get rid of my acne on my face, chest, and back. Marvelon was recommended by gp, but instead she put me on the generic brand cimzit. Made my face and back acne even worse, and had close to 3 migraines a month whilst taking it! Would not recommend, hoping to get marvelon soon
