Experience

Went on Rigevidon for three months, overall good experience as it is the first time trying the combined pill contraceptive method. However it did give me really dry skin and some acne(I have dry and clear skin), plus a few episodes of uncontrollable mood swings/depression. Will be switching to another brand to try for another three months.
