Experience

I took Rigevidon for a year as my first contraception. It worked well to control my periods but I had a lot of nausea with it that never went away. I was only on it for a year but the symptoms should only last 3-6 months. I also found it made me quite moody.

Experience after taking

I stopped getting nausea. My experience of stopping using it is hard to remember as I had a hormonal coil inserted straight away (and that has negative effects of it’s own).

Had a similar experience?
