Experience

I’ve found Rigevidon absolutely fine as a contraceptive method. I occasionally feel sick for the first couple of pills in a pack so take the pill at around 8-10pm to avoid feeling sick during the day! I love being on the pill as I like being able to control when my periods are by running packs together. It has definitely improved my skin and made my boobs bigger. I would say it has potentially made me more anxious and reduced my sex drive, but I’ve been on it since I was 17 and am now 25 so it’s hard to tell! Recently I’ve noticed if I run a few packs together that I get a bit of abdominal pain during the third pack so have just started taking packs monthly.
