About Rigevidon

Buy Rigevidon online

Buying medication online couldn’t be easier. You can only order Rigevidon from on online service like Zava as a repeat prescription, which means that you’ll need to have had your first prescription from your GP, in-person.

To order a repeat prescription from Zava, simply fill in a short medical questionnaire, so that our doctors can assess your current health needs and medical history. They’ll tell you whether or not Rigevidon is right for you. If they decide it is, our pharmacy will deliver it straight to your door using our discreet standard delivery service.

Dosage

Rigevidon is a combined oral contraceptive pill, which contains a combination of the hormones levonorgestrel (150 μg) and ethinylestradiol (30 μg).

The daily dose of Rigevidon is 1 pill per day for 21 days until the strip is empty. Try to take your pill at the same time every day – for example, after breakfast. After 21 days, there will be 7 days when you take no pills – it’s likely that during this time you’ll experience a withdrawal bleed that looks and feels a lot like your usual monthly period.

After these 7 days, you should start your next strip of 21 pills on the following (8th) day, even if your bleed continues, completing your full monthly cycle of 28 days.

If you’ve taken your Rigevidon pills properly, you should always start every new strip on the same day of the week each month.

Active ingredients

The active ingredients of Rigevidon are levonorgestrel and ethinylestradiol, which are synthetic versions of the sex hormones known as oestrogen and progesterone. Of the inactive ingredients in Rigevidon, lactose and sucrose are included. If you’re allergic to either of these ingredients, talk to your doctor before taking this pill.

Active ingredients of a medicine are the ingredients that are biologically active, which means that they have a measurable therapeutic effect. Inactive ingredients don’t affect the therapeutic action of the drug.

Common side effects

The most common side effects of Rigevidon are:

  • vaginitis
  • mood swings or depression
  • decreased libido (desire to have sex)
  • dizziness
  • nausea (feeling sick)
  • stomach pain
  • breast enlargement or pain
  • irregular bleeding
  • painful periods

You should seek urgent medical attention if you ever notice signs of a blood clot, either in your leg (DVT), or lung (pulmonary embolism), or a heart attack or stroke. Using a hormonal contraceptive slightly increases your chances of having a blood clot.
