No: After 3 months you will have less acne. If not, add spironolactone. If you have "boils" instead of acne, they can be treated but are not due to desogestrel or estrogen. ...Read more

Marvelon vs mercilon: No difference. They both have 150mcg of desogestrel and 30 mcg of estradiol. Microgynon has levonorgestrel in it instead of desogestrel. Levonorgestrel is considered a safer progesterone with slightly lower risk of blood clots than desogestrel has. ...Read more

Can I take my marvelon pills even if I stop it for 2 days? Coz I thought it can't be take together with duphaston?

Go see your doctor: It's time for you to talk to your doc. At least 3 different docs here have questioned the rationale for taking both marvelon (birth control) and Duphaston (used in Progesterone deficiency, possible to prevent preterm delivery). Can you take any birth control pill after stopping for 2 days? Yes but it's best not to stop if it can be avoided. For now, use 2nd form of contraception like condom. ...Read more

Why it is advisable to take marvelon at evening each day?

Why it is advisable to take marvelon at evening each day?

Not sure about that: Marvelon and other birth control pills should be taken at the same time each day, to maintain steady hormone levels. Hormone levels may have dropped if a pill is taken hours later. A person should choose a particular time of day such that she is able to take the pill, and will remember to take it every day, whether it is in the morning, the afternoon, or the evening. ...Read more

Can you start taking marvelon (21 days cycle bc pill) on day 7 of your cycle? Any side effects?

Can you start taking marvelon (21 days cycle bc pill) on day 7 of your cycle? Any side effects?

Breakthrough bleed: The later in the cycle you start your pack of pills the higher the chance of breakthrough bleeding. It can take a few cycles to regulate. I usually recommend that my patients start their pills the first sunday after starting their bleed. The reason we use sunday is so you are less likely to have your period on a weekend. ...Read more

Is brownish discharge and little cramps normal when on first cycle of taking Marvelon 28?

Yes: During the first few months of taking the birth control pill, women will often notice a small amount of spotting or cramping. This should be gone by the 3rd month. Try to take the birth control pill at the same time of day to minimize abnormal bleeding. Also, avoid missed pills, which will also cause irregular spotting and cramps. ...Read more

Hello. I had unprotected sex and I am not on any form of bc. I was wondering if I can take 2 doses of 4 pills of Marvelon 21 bc to act as an ec?

Hello. I had unprotected sex and I am not on any form of bc. I was wondering if I can take 2 doses of 4 pills of Marvelon 21 bc to act as an ec?

No!: Marvelon is used to prevent pregnancy. This drug does not prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. Also Marvelon does not work as emergency contraception such as after you have unprotected sex. I suggest you go to a clinic for a full exam which would include a pregnancy test. You can discuss your options with the physician there after your exam. I wish you well! ...Read more

Bf came inside me &the condom broke. I don't have access to ecp. I took 4 pills of marvelon&another dose of 4 pills after 12hrs. I'm ovulating. What now?

Bf came inside me &the condom broke. I don't have access to ecp. I took 4 pills of marvelon&another dose of 4 pills after 12hrs. I'm ovulating. What now?

As much as you can: I'm not sure how you know you're ovulating? Ovulation predictor kit? The amount of hormone you took should have prevented ovulation. If it's been more than 72 hours since the condom broke, likelihood of getting pregnant low as sperm can't live much longer in reproductive tract than that. Just wait at this point and see if you miss your period. If so, then take a home pregnancy test. Good luck! ...Read more

After being diagnosed with endometriosis, I have received 2 different treatments: diphereline for 6 months and belara or marvelon. Which one is better?

Birth control best: A birth control pill is the best treatment for endometriosis because it treats it and has the best side effects such as lighter, shorter and less painful periods.
