Experience

Having been on rigevdon and suffered extreme mood swings I swapped to this pill. I am a little disappointed that my mood swings can still be severe sometimes however for the most part they are much better. I am however, thinking of speaking to my gp about trying a different form of contraceptive ie coil/implant to see if it makes even more of a difference
