Contraception advice
Dear Doctor

I have a few question regarding my contraception, I am 30 and my husband and I are not really interested in having children. I had the "Mirena" inserted Sep two years ago, I had to have it removed this passed September as I had such bad Acne that I had spent that whole year on antibiotics for my skin (I usually don't have any problem with my skin, no acne as a teenager), I returned on to the pill that I was on pre "Mirena" (Marvelon) I have also tried previously Femodene ED, Wonderal, but at the moment I am feeling really depressed, I have had to huge cysts, one on the side of my face and another on my lower back. I would like to know is there another option then (Marvelon)? Is there a lighter type of pill that will not affect me so badly?
What would you recomend?

Thank you for your time.

If you are still having problems with acne ( I presume this is what the cysts are), you could try Diane 35.
