I experienced a change in mood and sex drive at the outset of starting Rigevidon in the first 6-12 months. I stopped feeling extremes of emotion, so no more ultra lows, but also no great highs either – I felt ‘neutralised’ in a sense. My sex drive also experienced an initial dip.
After years of committed usage, compared to other women’s contraceptive experiences, I would say overall I am satisfied. My periods have gotten smaller and smaller, with next to no cramping lately. Mood and sex drive-wise, I feel like I have rebalanced and feel like ‘myself’ again. I have otherwise not experienced any of the usual unpleasant side-effects most frequently reported. My only recent concern has been a sudden onset of vaginal dryness in the last year – which I am aware can be age-related.
