I have tried many contraceptions ranging from the injection to the implant. I landed on this pill at about 20 years old and at the beginning it worked really well considering how all the others gave me really bad bleeding or other side effects. I’ve been on Rigevidon on and off for about 8 years. And I’d say within the last few years I’ve noticed a huge change in my moods when on the pill and when on a break from it I’m happier. This pill has caused anxiety, worry, stress and bouts of depression. I’m not usually like this and it’s horrible to feel like each month I dread the time that my mood will dip and I’ll feel not like myself. I’ve had to even explain this to my fiancé so he’s prepared and it’s not fair on either of us. I overthink and it’s just like a grey cloud following me. It’s not worth it and truthfully I’ll be coming off it for good when this packet is finished!

My mood changed at first to become very anxious. Then about a month in, I got severe mood swings, was angry, very irritable, and extremely depressed. I talked to my friends and two of them were on rigevidon and experiences the same debilitating mood changes. The only thing this helped with was my acne, but my self-esteem was actually better with a face full of spots than it ever was on this pill. There are studies on the difference between second generation combined pills like rigevidon, and third generation pills which show the huge difference they have on your mood. I would recommend asking your doctor about this if they recommend rigevidon, but unfortunately a lot of doctors don’t know about the common link with depression and mood swings, and still prescribe this as a standard. For some people I think it works, but I think it causes a lot of serious mood changes that go unreported in a lot of others
