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!

As someone who has never got along with hormonal contraception, I’ve tried many pills over the years and Marvelon is definitely one of the best. Sadly I have to come off this pill due to depression (which was non-existent before starting) but the other side effects were more manageable and gradual: tender breasts, nausea, acne. Really gutted it’s caused such low mood as I would have happily continued otherwise.

At first it's was good for the first 8/10 months of using this pill. After the first year I noticed a dramatic difference in my mood and down there being sore quite often. Had cystitis twice and thrush was a pain to get rid of. Currently still taking it but I want to stop using this as it's done me no favours.
