Experience

Switched from Rigevidon to this due to low mood on Rigevidon, continued to have low mood on this but determined that it was probably other factors, not the pill, causing this & made other lifestyle changes which has improved my mood. I am switching from gedarel to another pill because I’ve been having week-long+ periods on it and am currently breakthrough bleeding for a week in the middle of my current pack (my 6th pack); previous periods have started before the end of my pill packs and have been light but lasted too long for my liking. Breasts were very tender particularly upon starting this pill but settles down quickly. There was noticeable vaginal dryness throughout me taking this pill.
