Experience

I switched from Yasmin to Marvelon as I was experiencing extreme nausea and mood swings on Yasmin. I also wanted to improve my acne. I’m really pleased with Marvelon so far – my skin is significantly better, my moods are very balanced, I have no PMS symptoms, I initially lost a few pounds and I have also found that I’m sleeping better and feel more energised. The only negative is that my libido has significantly reduced.
