Experience

I appreciate it’s early days, but some of the side effects of Rigevidon worry me, such as a marked decrease in sex drive. My partner is a bit depressed now that I don’t “jump him” anymore. Moreover, I am pretty sure my energy levels have been impacted as I spend several hours of the day now unable to concentrate, or very tired, which is not great when I have work to do! I am hoping this will settle down. Another strange thing was the period: I wished to skip one as I was going on holiday and didn’t want to be bothered. Instead of skipping to the next packet I got a period halfway through the second packet, and it did not stop for over a week. Talk about “regular periods with the pill”….
