Experience

Changed my life around! , was previously on cilest (loestrin before that) and had terrible mental health issues on both of them (depression and anger issues) and very painful cramping (loestrin). GP recommended rigevidon. Been on it for almost 3 years now, mental health is so so much better, very little cramps, period is so regular (within a few hours each month! Always the same day) Only bad thing I can say about this is that I put on a little weight (but could also be uni stress lol) and I went from a C to E cup size! Important to note though that all hormonal contraception will affect everyone differently! :)
