Arrow Marvelon Birth Control Pill

Hello Ladies,
For the past few months, I have been having irregular periods as compared to usual--I have been on Alesse for about 2 and a half years now, so I suspect that my body has just gotten used to it or something... My breasts have also been hurting throughout the month, for the past few months and this never used to happen... Anyway, I saw a doctor this week and he prescribed me Marvelon--has anybody taken this kind of BCP before?? If so, did you experience any side effects? Thanks for taking the time to read this!!

Re: Marvelon Birth Control Pill

A couple of my friends have been on it, and one of them experienced huge breast growth (we're talking two breast cup sizes).

Other than that, only a slight water retention, which went away with exercising regularly.

I hope this helps.

Re: Marvelon Birth Control Pill

Thanks for the reply, euglena. I got my prescription filled today, and when I read the little insert, it mentioned that weight "change" (I'm assuming either loss or gain) could be a possibility--now I'm REALLY scared about gaining weight while on this pill. That's the reason I've been waiting so long to switch because I just don't want to have to contend with extra weight gain when I'm already trying to lose 20lbs.

Any other replies are very welcome!

Re: Marvelon Birth Control Pill

It may be harder to lose weight because your body is pumped with more female hormones - and the female body has a tendency to store fat.

However, harder doesn't mean impossible - with reduced calories and exercise, you will lose weight :-D
