Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Yes you are protected. Marvelon is a combined oc that contains estrogen and progesterone Levest is also an combined oc. They have a different type of progesterone. This does not affect the effectiveness of the pill

Dr. K. :

You can change from one to the other without risk of pregnancy as long as you had only 7 days off. You are safe and protected.
