Experience

I was given this pill as I suffer from anxiety and depression and the Rigevidon I was taking made me feel so much worse. My mental health suffered less whilst taking the pill, but within weeks of coming off it I felt better and more myself again. However I experienced constant vaginal dryness and itchiness which made sex very painful and sperm felt like acid which sort of defeated the object (for me) of taking the pill.
