Marvelon is primarily a birth control pill. But some women do find it helpful for acne.
It’s also less likely than some other pills to affect your sex drive, or cause vaginal dryness, headaches or fuller breasts.
It’s also in the middle of the range for causing progestogenic or oestrogenic side effects, so many women will find it gives them a good balance for controlling menstrual symptoms like heavy bleeding during periods, or water retention.
You shouldn’t take Marvelon solely for acne, but if you’re looking for a birth control pill that helps to control acne as an added benefit, Marvelon may be useful.
