Given Rigevidon instead of Levest - Birth Control watch

    Hey, I've been taking Levest for three months no problems, went to pick up a years worth of pills and given Rigevidon. It has the same active ingredients but is a different brand.

    It says on the leaflet in the Rigevidon box that if changing pills you don't have a 7 day break, but in terms of active ingredients they're apparently the same?

    I m on a different pill now but i was switched from microgynon to rigevidon(still the same active ingredients) and took both back to back just to be safe.Although theoretically you should be fine as their both the same doseages
