Experience

It was 2 years after I started Rigevidon that I realised it was the reason for my severe mood dips, thinking I was just “crazy” before coming accross someone else’s experiences of it. I trialled 6 months off, before restarting to be certain. I’m so glad I saw that review and have been off the pill now for 6 months, periods are back to normal and so am I!

Experience after taking

Most importantly I’m back in control of myself, my mind quickly hit a very low place while on the pill, however this stopped within a few weeks of stopping the pill. My first period included discharge I’d not seen before, but apparently that was normal and all following periods have been fine.

Had a similar experience?
