I was on Marvelon from the age of 14 until 30 when my GP took me off it. I really didn't want to to cover off it but as a smoker I had no choice. I was so lucky that the first pill I tried was perfect for me, no side effects except bad headaches for the first six months.

This is my first experience on hormonal birth control. I was nervous to start because of potential mood swings and low libido. Thankfully I have not experienced dramatic changes in my mood and body. However, my mood has been neutral and at times almost numb. I have developed vaginal dryness and my libido has lowered significantly. This defeats the purpose of me being on birth control so I'm considering changing pill or to the copper coil. Everyone is different, but I have previously struggled with severe acne and painful periods. My skin was mostly clear and Marvelon has not exacerbated any breakouts. My periods have remained the same, perhaps shortening in length slightly. So far, it's been a mostly neutral experience but I want to update this review in a few month's time.
