Experience

Long term user of Rigevidon. I take it continuously with no breaks and I did used to have problems with random heavy spotting which were awful to deal with, but now I have no bleeding at all which is great. My skin and hair are very oily though – they always have been but I wonder if the pill is worsening this. I have not had any hair loss or thinning. I get some spots but can be managed with skincare routine. No horrendous acne or dry skin/eyes. I have no sex drive though which is affecting my relationship, I feel completely averse to sex as opposed to just not enjoying it. No mood swings, irritability or crying. Overall I’m happy with the pill due to no bleeding and fairly stable mood, but I would like to reduce the oiliness of my skin/hair and improve my sex drive – I am considering a pill with less androgenic qualities e.g. Yasmin.
