At the time I was very happy on this contraceptive pill. Minimal side effects, Improved my skin, boobs went up a cup size. Came off it as I was swapped to Microgynon 30 due to my sexual health practice no longer having maexini in stock. Since coming off combined contraceptives I have realised that the pill had lowered my sex drive and left my emotions feeling rather monotone.

Was given Rigevidon as a replacement for my microgynon 30 combined pill due to the pharmacy having run out. Within days of taking it I had "extreme" anxiety, chest felt tight and I was crying for literally no reason at all. I had never had anxiety before. As soon as I stopped taking this pill and switched back to microgynon the symptoms stopped. Although "technically" the two brands contain exactly the same hormones and amounts of each hormone - the quality control limits however are 80-125%. As we know everyone responds differently to hormone changes so even this small change in hormone levels for me changed my symptoms.
