I love that it's non-hormonal and I don't need to think about it. My only significant symptom has been heavier periods.

I have not had to worry about painful periods (I barely get periods anymore) or pregnancy for the last 5 years. My birth control (hormonal coil) has completely changed my life for the better.

I started taking this pill around 9 months ago after switching from another progesterone only pill (cerelle). The reason I switched was because the pat pill gave me a period every two weeks. When I first started taking Norgeston this issue completely cleared up, however, has now come back in the last two months. Aside from this I have also been noticing in the last few months I have been getting extremely low moods as well as very painful headaches so I’m thinking of switching to the combined pill

I’ve had constant bleeding with it apart from that it’s been great after nearly everything else disagreeing with me spoke to a lowdown Gp who was amazing she has given me an action plan with what I should do going forward and different options to try etc. Giving that ago for the next 6 weeks to see if there is any difference with the bleeding.

I took the Rigevidon pill for 3 years (but had been taking another brand for 7 years before that), Rigevidon overall made my PMS worse and it helped with my acne. I always thought I was a very anxious and emotional person, and after coming off the pill (after 10 years on that contraceptive in total), I realised that I am not that anxious. When I was on the pill, I used to have such intense reactions when stressed; now things are much less overwhelming.
