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!
