Marvelon pill - Combined Pill

I was put on the combi-pill in secondary school/college years and it was to help regulate my periods which it did but I kept getting extremely bad migraines the first day/just before my period came and I would have to have the day off and stay in bed in the dark. So once I explained this to my Dr we both agreed that I would come if it and switch to a different pill. Which I did but that wasn’t any better so then that lead me to getting the Depo-Injection
