Should I take a break while switching over form Evra patch to Marvelon ?

I was wondering if there is a waiting period that I have to wait if I am on the Evra patch to Marvelon? As well as is Marvelon a good oral birth control?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If you want to shift from Evra patch to Marvelon tablets you need not give a gap period in between. You can start using pills as soon as you remove the patch. Marvelon is quite safe and effective method of contraception and you can use it without any doubts .

Hi, I am on marvelon contraceptive pill. I missed a pill by over 24 hours on my first strip so started taking the second strip straight away without the 7 day break as advised. In the second week of strip two I started to bleed, I have just finished strip 2 and am still bleeding. Is this normal?

I am on the Marvelon contraceptive pill and have been for 8 months with no problems. I just had my pill free break and withdrawl bleed. I should have taken the first pill of the new pack last night (Monday night) but forgot and took it first thing this morning (Tuesday). I had sex with my husband last night.

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
