Experience

I was lucky enough to have Marvelon as the first pill I was prescribed and it’s the one I’ve continually gone back to. Over the years it’s really helped control my acne and makes a noticeable difference, its also made my boobs about a cup size bigger (win!!). I haven’t really had drastic mood side effects which is good.
