The only reason I came off marvelon is because my boobs were so sore whilst using it. I had some mild cramping when starting this pill but that soon resolved. The sore boobs were a dealbreaker for me unfortunately, so I switched to mercilon, the same ingredients just less oestrogen and now no boob pain!

I have been using marvelon for 3 years to manage severe period pain from 2 large fibroids when all NSAIDS didnt work. The pain reduced but not very much. Still the period affecting my QOL. So the doctor asked me to change to yasmin but after only one tablet of yasmin i got very severe nausea disturbing sleep and rapid heart beat and anxiety attacks ( feeling my heart is crushed) so i went back to marvelon immediately to stop these weird side effects of yasmin. But it managed my periods only 30%.
