Experience

I’ve been on Marvelon for 5 years & very regular periods. Would always know in my break which day I would be on my period & my periods were not heavy. I very rarely got period pains and sex drive was good. I have noticed spotting in between my periods, and now considering changing but researching which is most suitable. I would say that I got very bad mood swings being on this pill, and always put it down to me, but actually I think it’s becusse it’s a combined pill and not suiting me personally….
