Patient : I have been prescribed rigevidon pills from my doctor as my periods are heavy, i havnt started taking them yet as i havnt come onto my period, but i have been told that you can get acne, and im thinking of not taken them, is this true?
Though acne can occur with Rigevidon pills, they are however very unlikely. Less than 1 in 100 women on these pills develop acne. More common side effects include nausea, breast tenderness, irregular bleeding and headaches.
