Experience

I changed initially from rigevidon because I was getting migraines quite frequently and a severe low mood. My periods stopped completely after 2 days of spotting. My mood definitely fluctuates weekly but it’s a considerable improvement to when I was on rigevidon. However, I’ve noticed since taking the mini pill that more spider veins have appeared in a short period of time. I have had a few on my legs anyway for a number of years, but within the last few months a lot more have started to become visible.
