Experience

I started on Rigevidon to control my moods around my period as I was originally very suicidal only the week leading up to my period. This pill did calm my mood before my period, however I developed depression over the time I used it. My sex drive also disappeared completely and I really struggled to get wet down there. The worst thing that came from this pill was I developed a cervical ectropion, which caused bleeding and severe pain during and after sex, and was directly caused by the oestrogen in the pill. I also used to have a minor headache everyday when I woke up, and after stopping taking this pill I have barely had a headache.
