Experience

I was prescribed regividon when i was 17, I’m now 20 and had to go off it around 6 months ago. It caused a really noticeable decrease in sex drive which i couldn’t understand until i read that other women were having the same experience. My skin is what finally forced me to go off this pill as, when I turned 20, the pill caused acne which i had never experienced before. My doctor suggested topical cream which i tried for a while but the only thing that worked was switching pill to lucette. I know it is a cheap contraceptive which is prescribed quite readily but overall, I wouldn’t recommend this pill.
