Experience

I started on this pill when I was 19. I’m now 31. I have suffered with anxiety and a virtually non existent sex drive for many years – I’m not sure if this is directly linked to my use of the pill or not. Before going on the pill I was not sexually active and obviously whether I was on the pill or not my body, emotions, sex drive etc would have changed with age. I wasn’t aware of the very negative side effects of Rigevidon 30/150MCG until recently and am surprised that, despite many visits to the doctors over the years regarding my mental health, they did not suggest coming off that specific pill. I have made the decision to come off the pill and look forwards to rediscovering who I am without it’s interference!
