I have just started taking Marvelon (oral contraceptive) - about a week now. I am not sure if it IS the pill, or if it is just stress ... but I am extremely irritable, I have a burning/paining sensation (much like a bladder infection) every evening after I take the pill. I am under a lot of stress - work, personal life, finance ... so these make me feel worse.

Can anyone tell me if the pill is making me feel this way? Is it normal? Is it a period that my body has to adjust?

The irritability could be due to the Pill. Pain would not be related. Perhaps you have a bladder infection.
