PCOS and Marvelon

I am 19years old, I have PCOS, too high levels of testosterone, insulin resistance and too low levels of estrogen. My gynae has put me on Marvelon (aswell as Glucophage). Why do you think he put me on Marvelon when other contraceptives actually have anti-androgens? Will Marvelon also help to reduce my testosterone levels?
