Experience

I was put on this pill at the start of my relationship 7 years ago. I’ve recently stopped taking it after discovering that blood clots are common in my family. I never had any serious issues with this pill, but I wasn’t a very pleasant person to be around. As many other reviews of this pill explain, Rigevidon can make you feel very low. I didn’t realise how bad it got until I came off it.
