Experience

I had never experienced issue with other pill (reviewed also). So gaining weight was an unwelcome surprise but I think it was the horrendous acne that pushed me to request a change back to my previous pill. I had been told it was exactly the same but clearly it was not.

Experience after taking

Once I went back to my previous pill the weight came back off and the acne vanished. I pushed my drs to put me back on the previous pill (microgynon 30). They only moved me to rigevidon as it was cheaper and they said it was identical.

Had a similar experience?
