Experience

I was moved onto Marvelon as my pharmacy had no supply of Loestrin 20 – I noticed pretty much as soon as I started taking it that I become far more emotional with negative mood swings. I’m experiencing headaches, my my sex drive decreased, I have vaginal dryness and I feel more self conscious than before with my partner of 3 years. I have slightly more spots than before but it’s not too noticeable.
