Experience

Rigevidon was a great combined pill for me. Whilst giving me more control over my periods, I also found that my acne cleared up! It is one of the few hormonal contraceptives that did not affect my mental health negatively. Unfortunately, due to experiencing only 2 migraines with aura whilst on this pill, I am no longer allowed to take it as there is research (albeit limited and quite outdated) that this pill increases stroke risk amongst migraine-with-aura sufferers.
