Experience

Following completion of my implant, I switched onto the Rigevidon pill however found that it impacted my sex drive. I spoke to my nurse who prescribed Gederal instead however this pill seriously impacted my emotions and made my sex drive practically none existent. Since coming off this pill and switching to the mirena IUD, I feel like a completely different person.
