Experience

II took this pill for 9 weeks straight. Initially, I felt good on Marvelon for around 10 days. I was put on this for suspected endometriosis but unfortunately, it made my periods heavier and cramping was worse. I had a horrible breakthrough bleed that was very heavy and lasted 9 days. I had acne during the first couple of weeks however this settled. I also had headaches and constipation for the whole time I was taking this pill.
