It isn't called marvelon in the US though, it is called Desogen, I had to find that out because it was innitially prescribed to me in Australia, where it goes by the other name. Another Commonwealth thing.
I don't know that much about the ring, but I have heard good things...the big plus is that unlike depo it can be removed...that way if you have a bad reaction to the BC you can stop it.
Funny birth control story:
I was having some friends over before we went out (when I lived in Aus.) and for some reason my packet of marvelon was sitting out. My at-the-time boyfriend picks up the package and looks at it. Now I am all the way across the room, so he calls over...and everyone in the room shuts up to hear what he is going to say.
"Marvelon...sounds good! Can I have some?"
"That is my birth control honey."
