Experience

I went into the Marvelon pill at the age of 21 when I became sexually active with my partner and I did not want to become pregnant anytime soon. I was using another combined pill which caused me to break out and gain weight. However, when I switched to this one my skin became clearer and I went back to my normal weight, as well as my period becoming regular which was a shock as I never thought that my period would be regulated by the pill and now my cycle is 28 days. I am very happy with Marvelon and will continue to use it.
