Experience

This was the first pill I ever went on and it wasn’t until I came off it – after increased anxiety and poor mental health – that I realised how much it negatively affected my moods and general outlooks and emotions. Whilst the contraceptive side was amazing, it was definitely not worth it. Many of my friends have had negative experiences with Rigevidon in regards to their mental health.
