I started taking Rigevidon in February 2021, and overall I had a decent experience with it. During the first two months of taking it, I noticed that I had a lot of breast tenderness and increased irritability/anxiety at certain points in my cycle. Both of these effects stopped after about two months and I now have no other side effects besides a decrease in sex drive. The main advantage of this pill and the main reason why I’m giving it a good review is because it’s helped make my periods lighter and a lot less painful, which has been very liberating after having struggled with cramps that would make me nauseous and disrupt my life each month for many years. I will be switching to a more long-lasting option because I don’t like having to remember to take it around the same time every day – although I’ve never missed a single pill, it stresses me out to think about what might happen if I forgot etc. Overall I feel lucky that I did not have bad side effects like other people reviewing Rigevidon, and I would encourage anyone who wants to go on it to find a way to track their side effects, which made the experience a lot less confusing for me.
