Experience

I have tried both Yasmin & Microgynon combined pill before Marvelon and have experienced issues with them all. Marvelon caused many problems for me when I began taking it such as vaginal dryness, bleeding during intercourse & after, very tender breasts and quite severe acne. All of those symptoms apart from acne have now disappeared however I am still searching for the perfect pill as acne is really getting me down :(
