Experience

I was on a different pill, Loestrin 20 for 16 years with no issues. Then i went back on this after children, still great. unfortunately, it was discontinued!! The Rigevidon has given me very bad spots under my skin on my chin. They can weep and become sore. At first i didn’t make the link, but i have a healthy lifestyle and exercise frequently. it all started when i was about a month in on the pill and has got progressively worse.
