About Marvelon

Marvelon is a reliable and reversible combined hormonal contraceptive.

Containing both oestrogen and progestogen, Marvelon is a low-dose contraceptive that prevents eggs being released from the ovaries and increases the viscosity of the cervical lining, reducing the chances of fertilisation.

Marvelon can reduce pre-menstrual symptoms as well as make periods more regular and less painful.

What is Marvelon?

Marvelon is a combined pill that mimics two hormones, progesterone and oestrogen. It works by restricting the release of an egg from the ovaries, and making the cervix uninhabitable for sperm.

Is Marvelon suitable for everyone?

Marvelon is not suited to everyone. Please see the “Staying Safe with Prescription Doctor” section in order to ensure it is right for you. Marvelon may not be suitable for those sensitive to hormone changes and women over 35. Always read the associated patient information leaflet before taking your medicine. If you find it is not suitable for you, visit our pharmacy to buy alternative oral contraception that uses a single hormone.

Is Marvelon 100% effective against unwanted pregnancy?

No contraception is 100% effective against unwanted pregnancy. You should combine the pill with another method, such as condoms.

What else do I need to know about Marvelon?

Marvelon may not work when taken alongside antibiotics or certain other medications.

Marvelon does not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia or HIV. It is advised to use another form of contraception, such as condoms, to reduce the risk of contracting an STD.

Staying safe with Prescription Doctor

Your safety is paramount to us, which is why we encourage you to learn about your prescribed medication and be able to identify any problems you have, should they arise.

Speak to your doctor before taking Marvelon if you:

  • Have or have had heart, blood or circulation problems
  • Suffer from diabetes
  • Have kidney or liver problems
  • Have had severe depression
  • Have ever had migraines
  • Have brown patches on your face and body
  • Are taking other medications, including herbal remedies.

Side effects of Marvelon

Every medication has side effects and Marvelon is no different. You can significantly reduce your own risk of side effects by reading through all the information. It’s important never to take someone else’s medication and to always heed the prescriber’s instructions.

Side effects can include:

  • Headache / Migraine
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Tender breasts
  • Mood changes
  • Irregular vaginal bleeding
  • Skin problems
  • Digestive problems
  • An increased risk of blood clotting.

Speak to your GP or seek medical advice should you need reassurance on any of the side effects you experience.

How to buy Marvelon

You can buy Marvelon from Prescription Doctor easily. Once you've completed our online consultation, our prescribers will write you a birth control prescription.

Completely confidential while offering many options

We've been prescribing birth control to females from our UK registered pharmacy for over a decade and developed our services to be as convenient and comprehensive as possible.

We keep all of your details completely confidential while offering many options for delivery. You can choose to have the birth control delivered to your home, to a friend or a place of work. In all instances you will receive a one-hour delivery window that will enable you to fit the delivery in around your normal working day.

Discreet service

The package will arrive in a double layer of discreet wrapping that gives no clue to the contents inside. Even if a curious family member peeked through the external packaging, they would find a plain white box underneath. They would have to rip open the whole thing to gain access to your medication and once the seals are broken they are impossible to fix. We guarantee complete privacy and confidence when buying from Prescription Doctor.
