Experience

About 6 and a half years, I was on this pill from the age of 15. I can’t say I remember any differences in my mood. Although I have suffered with acne since I was a teenager and this pill did not improve my skin at all. I would not recommend Rigevidon for acne sufferers, Since now being on the Dianette combo Pill for acne my skin has never been more clear.

Experience after taking

Nothing changed after stopping this pill. I probably gained some weight, although this could be due to gyms closing in lockdown :(! I have now been prescribed Dianette which has cleared up all my acne. I wouldn’t recommend Rigevidon for those looking to clear up their acne.
