If you suffer with migraines (especially with an aura) this is not the pill for you. I am no Doctor however have had migraines my whole life. 2 years after taking this pill and only now do I find out that I should not be on this pill as there is an increased risk of stroke. I have repeatedly gone back regarding worsening headaches and dizziness, and nothing has been said. I did not get a choice to change the pill as the risk was so great. So if you have migraines DO NOT TAKE RIVEGDON!
Also, as Rivegdon is an oestrogen based pill, it can cause cervical erosion (the erosion of the cells) which can cause irregular or post-coital bleeding. My Doctor told me that once you have cervical erosion, it can get better, but rarely can you get rid of it. I really wish I was informed about this before starting the pill. I am having a horrible experience of gynae checks and looking at possible treatments including biopsy and cauterisation. So please, take note, and if it suits you best try the mini pill which doesn't contain oestrogen. This is so common however, no one knows or talks about it.
Is this true?
