IVF Medication Review: Marvelon

Both DW and I have had a really rough time on the Marvelon, and have been so happy to finally stop taking it a few days ago.

These are symptoms and side effects we each report:

DW: constant spotting after week one, cramping with spotting, pimples on the face, weight gain, larger breasts, mood swings, heavier cramping and bleeding than a regular menstrual period.

Moi: bad headaches, especially during a Marvelon period (I normally don’t he headaches at all), moodiness, cravings for sweets, weight gain, larger breasts, pimples on back (never happens for me), heavier bleeding and the terrible cramps during period (I don’t usually have cramps during a normal period).

We both got our periods about 48 hours after our last pill.

    • Marvelon is a birth control pill that they sometimes give to women during the cycle before an IVF treatment cycle. They’ve got both myself and my wife on it because we’re doing a surrogate IVF- my eggs in her uterus- and need to have our cycles synchronized.
