Ok, I looked up Marvelon (a Canadian/UK brand I was unfamiliar with). I assumed it was a progesterone only pill because you mentioned your doc knows you are breastfeeding.

It is a combined oral contraceptive pill with an estrogen notorious for trashing milk supplies. I would NEVER put one of my breastfeeding ladies on this particular pill. Holy cow, I am amazed you even have a milk supply!

There are so many options that would keep you protected from pregnancy but also would be kind to your milk supply.

I'm speechless.
