Was really anxious about taking these after coming off rigevidon however I’m pleasantly surprised. Minor spotting episodes during the first few months of taking but not bothersome. My skin and hair are oilier but not unmanageable. No more intense period pains or heavy bleeding.

I started this pill after being advised to come off the COCP. It gave me severe cystic acne on my body and face which caused pain and low self-confidence, it also caused very frequent UTI's (which I never had before taking this pill) and issues with the skin of my vulva (burning/dryness/pain) which even consultants could not diagnose or treat. I ended up coming off this pill and going back onto the COCP and all my symptoms went away.

I took me a whole year to realise my depressive state, my terrible body odor, my thick and dense body hair, my hair loss and my constant headaches were related to the same thing: the pill. The only thing that was evident from the start was how oily my face and body became and consequently, all the acne that I got on my face, chest and entire back were due to the pill. Another thing no one tells you about is how your breasts lose density and become smaller and saggy (as opposed to the enlargement caused by estrogen). And you can also have constant insomnia. After 2 years taking the pill and accepting that I would have to deal with side effects for many years to come (I have endometriosis), my spotting turned into heavy bleeding and then into multiple periods in a single month. The diagnosis: I had developed an intolerance to synthetic progestogen. How great! After stopping the pill, I felt like I had taken a shot of serotonin, and only then did I notice how depressive I had been all this time. It's been a battle, but I believe I'm uphill now.
