Experience

I have taken both Levest and Rigevidon with exactly the same results. It did what I wanted – contraceptive and stopped my periods, I was able to run pills together with no spotting and it worked effectively for nearly 7 years with minimal physical side effects, reduced PMS (and clearer skin!).

Experience after taking

I came off it mainly due to my mood/attitude becoming much worse during the pandemic and looking for something to try and fix it. Since coming off I feel so much clearer, I have a higher libido and I’m overall in a more positive place – I felt like the pill flattened my emotions.

Had a similar experience?
