Experience

I was originally put on microgynon but turned into rigevidon (apparently the same thing). I have stuck it out with this one hoping I would ho back to how I was originally, but I have had increased anxiety and depression and bleeding in between periods. However the periods themselves have been easy, no pain and very light. I have experienced dryness and pain during sex with this pill also, which is new in the last year. Now about to try a progesterone only.
