Review of "Marvelon Contraceptive Pill"
Marvelon is a combined pill containing oestrogen and the progestin desogestrel
It is one of the newest low dose contraceptives although risk of thrombosis with this style of pill is slighter higher than prveious generation pills.
Pills come in packs of 21 or 28 and they are taken every day for 3 weeks with a 1 week break
I was on this pill for 15 years and have to say had no problems with it at all
The advantages I found with Marvelon were that
1-there was a 12hour leeway in which to take the pill so if you forgot to take it ,you had 12hours with which to remember!!!
2-No side effects for me, dont think it made my periods any lighter though
3-Contraception was good -I did not fall pregnant in 15 years!
4-I was able to run 3 packs together concurrently and so enabled me to alter when I decided to have my period which was superb for holidays etc
All in all, I would recommend this product and had I not been a smoker ,I would still be using it today
