Marvelon is the equivalent of Desogen. It contains the same amount of desogestrel and estrogen as Desogen. Some women have had good experiences, some bad on Desogen and Mircette (Mircette is desogestrel also). Anyone who had taken Desogen or Mircette should reply to you also. I know that desogestrel still has androgenicity to it - low - but nevertheless it is still there and could possibly aggravate your acne or not make it better. It is NOT equivalent to Yasmin, as Yasmin contains drospirenone (an anti-androgen, no androgenicity) not desogestrel. With acne, feeding your body with that extra estrogen should help but you may be counteracting it and even worsening it depending on the progestin that is in the Pill you are taking.
