Hello! I take Rigevidon for more than six months. This month, when I took 19 pills, after 2 hours I had an excuse (diarrhea). Please tell me if my contraceptive effect has decreased. On this day there was no sexual intercourse, and on 21 pills there was sexual intercourse. Tell me if there is a chance of getting pregnant.

    Evgeniya34 (consultant):
    555, no likelihood.

Hello, I take Rigevidon 7 days, today should be the 8th pill. At the same time, the monthly periods are already 8 days, and even intensified. Instead of the usual daub, today it’s just gushing, as if it was blood in general, and not menstrual. And I do not know what to do. Either stop taking it right away, or finish it by 21 days and quit. Earlier, before pregnancy and childbirth, 10 years ago (now I am 27) I took logest for two months, and this was not the case. And the monthly did not go for a whole week, but decreased to three days, and they came after 21 pills. And now, to be honest, I'm already starting to panic. Stop taking rigevidon or doperpet to 21 tablets?

    Evgeniya34 (consultant):
    Irina Zapp, you cannot stop taking it, it will only increase the discharge. If the discharge is scanty, obscure, then you do not need to do anything, the body will cope. If the discharge intensifies and resembles the menstrual by abundance, then it is necessary to double the daily dose of OK taken (1 tab. In the morning and 1 in the evening), and so take until the bleeding stops, and then return to the usual dose of 1 tab. per day. Since the total cycle of OK administration should not be shorter than 21 days, it is necessary to purchase another package of the drug in order to take additional pills from it.

Hello, I am 26 years old, I had acne from rigevidon, my skin became greasy. And a lot of "daub". I would like to switch to other pills. The gynecologist advises "which ones I like more, there are now many different ones." And which is still better to pick up?

    Evgeniya34 (consultant):
    Julia, there are no bad or good OK, there is one that fits or does not fit a particular woman or girl. About daub:
    With a cosmetic effect Yarin, Janine, Diana, Belara.

Good day to all. I decided to clarify the following information for my girlfriend. I'll start over. We went with a gynecologist to clarify which contraceptive is better to drink, we did an ultrasound, found a cyst on the right ovary, were treated with droppers and injections in the day hospital. Then they started drinking Rigividone (contraception). It took about one and a half months, there were no complications during the admission, the girl with the doctor considered the end of the menstruation, they went on schedule, and re-ultrasound, to re-check the cyst. But the monthly did not end, but continued to go, at week 2 they went to the doctor again, said that a long period is possible, you have to wait. At 3 weeks, the doctor prescribed a hemostatic for sure I could not name. At week 4, we went to the hospital, the attending physician said that Rigividon might have to be taken by course, that is, to drink 5 tablets today, tomorrow 4, etc. I don’t say anything concrete about the causes of bleeding and I would like to clarify whether it is possible to drink these pills like that ??

    Evgeniya34 (consultant):
    magmar, it is possible, this is a hemostatic (hemostatic) scheme: 5-4-3-2-1 and then one tab per day. If a girl has cysts, then it makes sense for her to take OK all the time until she is ready to plan a pregnancy.

    Evgeniya34 (consultant):
    Lyudmila, you need to take Rigevidon according to the regimen recommended by your doctor. And about the effect on weight here:

One more question: how can I find Yarina?

04/08/2014, Irina Zapp
Hello, I have already written my questions about rigevidon, but I am interested in the following - you need to start taking rigevidon from the 1st day of your period, I did. I noticed that on day 1 after taking 1 pill, my stomach began to hurt, the pain was tolerable, and reminded me of the onset of labor at birth. And the amount of this menstruation has decreased. The question is: before, my period of menstruation was 5 days, not more. On day 6, there was nothing. And now (I take pills for 6 days), and menstruation is already 6 days, which is uncharacteristic for me. And as if not going to stop. Allocations are small, but they are. Is this normal? And will it ever stop? Or is it worth throwing pills?

    Evgeniya34 (consultant):
    Irina Zapp, this is normal. The entire first package can be chaotically bloody. The theme of bleeding in the first 3 months of taking any COC - on the forum was discussed hundreds of times. Please read the instructions for the drug, and then here in detail:

04/08/2014, Irina Zapp
Tell me, please, but are there such OK, from which every now and then it does not bleed? Or there are none? The fact is that I started to take OK for the most part not for the purpose of contraception, but because of heavy menstruation, which I would like to reduce.

    Evgeniya34 (consultant):
    Irina Zapp, no such OK. This is a side effect in the first months of taking any OK.

Pharmacological effects

Contraceptive pills "Rigevidon" is a monophasic combined oral contraceptive oral estrogen-progestin drug. When it is taken orally, it suppresses the secretion of pituitary gonadotropic hormones. The effect of contraception is due to several mechanisms. Levonorgestrel, a derivative of 19-nortestoterone, which is more active than progesterone, the hormone of the corpus luteum (and its synthetic analogue, pregnin), acts as a gestagenic element (progestin). It works at the receptor level. The estrogen component is ethinyl estradiol.

Due to the effects of levonorgestrel, a blockade of FSH and LH release - releasing hormones from the hypothalamus occurs, suppression of the secretion of gonadotropic hormones by the pituitary gland, which inhibits maturation and then the release of the egg, prepared for fertilization (ovulation). The protective effect is enhanced by ethinyl estradiol. The high viscosity of the cervical mucus is preserved, which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the uterine cavity. Simultaneously with the contraceptive effect, with regular use, it normalizes the menstrual cycle and prevents the appearance of many gynecological pathologies, including tumors.


Let us take a closer look at how the active components of the contraceptive pills “Rigievidon” work.

Ethinyl estradiol. This substance is almost completely and rapidly excreted from the intestine. It undergoes a peculiar “first pass” effect through the work of the liver. The half-life is approximately 26 hours.

When ethinyl estradiol is taken orally, it is removed from the blood plasma for twelve hours. The half-life is 5.8 hours.

Ethinyl estradiol metabolism occurs in the intestine and liver. The metabolites of this substance are water-soluble glucuronide or sulphate conjugates, which enter the intestine with bile, where they disintegrate by means of intestinal bacteria.

Metabolism occurs in the liver, the half-life varies from 2 to 7 hours.

Ethinyl estradiol is eliminated by the intestines and kidneys.

Levonorgestrel. This component is absorbed quickly (less than four hours). Does not fall under the effect of "first pass" through the liver. If levonorgestrel is used simultaneously with ethinyl estradiol, there is a relationship between the maximum content and dosage in the plasma. The elimination half-life of levonorgestrel from the body is from 8 to 30 hours (16 hours on average). More levonorgestrel in the blood binds to HSPG (i.e. globulin that binds sex hormones) and albumin. Metabolism occurs in the liver. This substance is excreted through the intestines and the kidneys.

We reviewed the instructions, price, reviews for the drug "Rigewidon".

Admission Rules

Rigavidone tablets must be taken daily, preferably at the same time. As a rule, before bedtime. Evening reception minimizes side effects, improves the digestibility of active ingredients.

  • Starting to drink tablets should be on the first or last day of menstruation. If a woman has previously taken another drug, you need to finish the package until the end, on the first day of your period, drink Rigevidon. Further according to the scheme.
  • Menstruation should begin while taking brown pills. The absence of active ingredients in their composition leads to a sharp decrease in progesterone, which causes menstrual bleeding. Magnesium stearate and other auxiliary components prevent the deterioration of health during the critical days, keep the level of hemoglobin, pressure, etc., at the right level. If you do not start the monthly pill for 7 days, start the new package without interruption.
  • Take Rigevidon necessary after consultation with a specialist. Hormonal background while taking pills must be constantly monitored. A woman is obliged to visit a gynecologist once a month, even if nothing is bothering her.

With good tolerability, Rigevidon can be used as a contraceptive for an unlimited amount of time.

If a tablet is missed

Take the drug should be according to the scheme. Premature discontinuation of the course causes bleeding. What to do if a tablet is missing?

  1. It took less than 12 hours. You need to take the missed dose, continue to continue taking as scheduled.
  2. It took more than 12 hours. You need to throw away the pill, take the next one at the scheduled time.

Do not simultaneously take 2 tablets at once. In this case, there is an overdose with side effects, deterioration of health.

Features of the monthly admission

Ripevidon allows you to restore the menstrual cycle, to prevent bleeding. However, the female body can respond to pills in its own way. What is considered the norm when to sound the alarm?

In the first 3 months of the start of taking the pills, the organism adapts to the new conditions of existence. At this time, possible menstrual bleeding, lack of menstruation, daub in the middle of the cycle. This is considered normal and does not require discontinuation of the drug. Worry is necessary if the situation arose 3 months after the start of reception.

  • Do not go monthly. There may be several options. Rigevidon inhibits the production of estrogen very strongly, the endometrial layer is not formed, at the time of menstruation there is simply nothing to reject. Taking certain medications reduces the effect of contraceptives. Delay may be due to pregnancy.

    The same situation can occur if there was a missed tablet in the cycle. The absence of menstruation may indicate the presence of gynecological diseases. It is necessary to conduct a test, visit a gynecologist.

  • Started before. There is a surplus of hormones, you need to take a break. Or there is a gynecological disease. Attention should be paid to the presence of other alarming symptoms.
  • Go for a long time. The situation indicates a violation of hormonal levels. If menstruation does not end at the beginning of the use of pills, there is nothing wrong with that. In other cases - an alarming symptom that speaks about the development of diseases, including cancer.
  • Scanty (heavy) discharge. Under the influence of pills, the number of menstrual flow is reduced. If a woman before this period lasted 3 days, there was little blood, instead of menstruation there will be scanty discharge. If the situation occurs after a long time after using Rigevidon, variants 2 - hormonal disorder, disease. And also it is worth worrying if the spotting does not end at all.
  • Bleeding started. Large discharge of blood is always an alarming symptom. What could be? Pregnancy. Contraceptives do not give 100% of the result, the chance to get pregnant increases, if the pill is missed, you had to take medicines. And by themselves, hormonal pills increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Bleeding with severe pain indicates a premature miscarriage, rupture of the ovary. In the case of an ectopic pregnancy, immediate hospitalization is required, otherwise the woman risks dying from internal hemorrhage. Bleeding is a symptom of many gynecological diseases. Unfortunately, self-diagnosis cannot be made. Inspection, examination is necessary. Bleeding always occurs if a woman stops taking the pills without finishing the packaging until the end.

Features of the month when canceled

After stopping the pill, the body reappears in

stressful condition. From now on, the ovaries need to independently regulate the amount of hormones, stimulate natural processes. On the recovery of the body is given 3 months. At this time, the monthly may be absent, smear, do not stop for a long time, linger, and so on. Worry is necessary if after 3 months the menstrual cycle is not adjusted.

How quickly the menstrual cycle recovers without pills depends on the duration of the drug. If a woman takes up to a year, it happens quickly. The opportunity to get pregnant appears the next month after discontinuation of the drug. And also there are individual features of the body. If the menstruation was irregular until Rigavidonone, it is possible that the cycle will also be disturbed after withdrawal. In general, for 3 months, menstruation becomes what it was before.

Ripevidon is well tolerated, reliably protects against unwanted pregnancy, regulates hormones, menstruation. Take should be prescribed by a physician, monitor well-being, regularly undergo regular inspection.

Why is Rigavidone prescribed

As an estrogen component, Rigevidon contains ethinyl estradiol, and as a gestagen component, levonorgestrel acts. The main purpose of the drug is oral contraception. This effect is achieved due to the suppression of ovulation, an increase in the viscosity of the mucus of the cervical canal of the cervix. The thickness of the endometrium of the uterine cavity also changes, which prevents the normal implantation of a fertilized egg.

Like other oral contraceptives, Rigevidon counteracts the formation of functional cysts on the ovaries, and is therefore used after their surgical treatment or during conservative therapy.

Also on the background of its reception, a slowdown in the growth of fibromatous nodes is noted, the menstrual function is improving. But if the monthly periods are possible on Ripevidon of a pathological nature, it depends on the available gynecological pathology and the hormonal background of the woman.

This drug has several advantages compared with other means of similar action. These include the following:

  • After a course of administration, the probability of ectopic pregnancy is reduced. This effect is used to prescribe the drug immediately after surgery for tubal location of the ovum.
  • This medicine reduces the severity of venous congestion in the pelvic area.
  • The placebo pills are enriched with iron, so the prescription is useful for women with strong menstruation. Helps Ripevidon stop menstruating with an excessively abundant temper and at the same time renew microelement stocks.
  • During the seven-day intake of pacifiers, one's own production of FSH is activated, which is necessary for the growth and maturation of follicles in the ovary. But with the beginning of the new packaging process is retarded. Thus, the development of the “hyper-inhibition syndrome” does not occur and the adaptation to the reception is higher: their own periods after Rigevidon are restored quickly after the final cancellation.

Action of hormonal contraceptives

Basic rules for taking the drug

Rigevidon per pack contains 21 tablets with active ingredients and 7 pacifiers. It is necessary to accept in turn all from the first day of monthly, at the same time daily.

Many are wondering if to start drinking Rigividon, how to cause menstruation? There is no need to make an additional break between new packages of medicine. As active pills are used and placebo is administered, the girl has a menstrual discharge.

Some nuances of admission:

  • When switching to Ripevidon from other birth control pills, you should start using it on the first day of any bleeding. When removing a transdermal patch, a hormonal coil or a vaginal ring, the first tablet should be taken on the same day.
  • After termination of pregnancy up to 12 weeks, the drug must be drunk at the time of the procedure. In the case of a longer period or after childbirth, you can start using the product only after the first normal menstruation. It should also be borne in mind that during lactation it is impossible to take Rigevidon - it penetrates into breast milk in significant quantities.
  • In the case of skipping the next pill, if not more than 36 hours have passed, it is necessary to drink it as soon as possible. The contraceptive effect is preserved. If more than 36 hours have passed, you do not need to take the missed pill. And in the following week additional non-hormonal methods of birth control should be used. After taking Rigevidon, menstruation in such a case may come not according to the intended schedule, there is also a probability of spotting.

Watch the video on the effects of hormonal contraception:

Possible side effects

In most cases, Ripevidon does not have serious consequences of admission if all instructions given to it are followed. In case of minor disorders, they disappear during the first months of administration.

Most often, women note the appearance of headaches, increased fatigue, irritability, nervousness. Nausea is also possible, rarely vomiting and other digestive disorders.

It is also necessary to monitor liver function and blood glucose levels, especially in individuals prone to such changes.

Like all contraceptive drugs, Rigevidon increases the risk of blood clots, so it is not prescribed to women with varicose disease and its complications.

Sometimes there is a decrease in libido, an increase in the likelihood of developing candidiasis of the vagina due to changes in the quality of mucus.

Effect on the menstrual cycle

Ripevidon - monophasic combined oral contraceptive. Despite the fact that it contains both estrogen and progestin, the number in each pill is the same. This is contrary to the cyclic and constantly changing hormonal background of a woman. Therefore, against the background of taking the medication, various failures occur, which should be interpreted as the adaptation of the organism to the new regime.

You can hear from the girls and such a remark: I accept Rigevidon and there is no menstruation. Tactics in each case is different. In such a situation, it is better to contact a gynecologist, who can most correctly interpret such failures.

Monthly after taking

During the first month, sometimes two or three, a woman may experience periodic spotting. In situations like this, girls often interpret this by accepting Rigevidon when menstruation does not end. In fact, this is an acyclic insignificant discharge, indicating adaptation to a new hormonal background. As a rule, everything is normalized on the second or third package of tablets.

Stop menstruation and causes of delay

Ideally, the monthly should come immediately to cancel the active pills. But they are allowed to start within 7 - 10 days. Therefore you should not panic if the whole package of Rigevidon is over, but not monthly.

Sometimes during one cycle, there may be a general omission of any bleeding. If this happened once, after exclusion of pregnancy should continue to receive. Similar failures can occur while taking hormone pills. In the case when the girl alone cannot exclude the possibility of conception, it is necessary to contact a specialist.

If there is a need to eliminate in the next cycle of menstruation, it is necessary to skip the pacifiers and immediately begin active tablets of the new packaging. Monthly in this case will be in 56 - 60 days.

We recommend reading the article about the delay of menstruation. From it you will learn about the possible causes of the absence of menstruation, diagnosis and methods of treating the disorder.

Bleeding: what to do

Sometimes, taking Rigevidon, do not end monthly, but begin to increase, turning into bleeding. In such situations, you should contact a specialist as soon as possible. If this is not possible, it is necessary to start taking hemostatic pills (etamzilat, vikasol, ascorutin, tranexam and the like), herbal preparations, and apply cold on the lower abdomen.

Bleeding in most cases will decrease, but you will have to seek medical help if it does not stop at all.

The advantages of oral contraceptives compared to other methods of protection are obvious. Rigevidonone is one of the popular drugs that is recommended for use in girls with a pronounced estrogenic phenotype. Sometimes on the background of the reception may be minor violations of the cycle. In such situations, you should consult a doctor, who can clearly explain why, while taking Rigevidon, menstruation did not come or other failures appeared. Only he can recommend further intake or refusal of medication.

"Rigevidon": composition

In terms of its composition, “Rigevidon” can be attributed to oral contraceptives of the combined type. The drug is monophasic, which means that the concentration of estrogenic and progestin components is the same in each tablet.

Based on only one composition, a person without special medical education is unlikely to be able to understand how this or that drug, including “Rigevidon”, is suitable for him. Feedback from women, on the contrary, will help to present the overall picture, to highlight the features not only of a group of medicines, but also of a specific type of pill.

Many users claim that they decided to take the drug not only because of its high performance. The main advantage of the drug is a sparing effect on the body. It is not a secret to anyone that side effects and effects on other organs can negate even the best testimony. Given that contraception is supposed to be taken regularly for several years, the harm they cause should be minimized.

Active substances and their functions

How exactly does the organism "Rigavidon"? Instructions, reviews of doctors and their comments will help to put complex concepts on the shelves and find out how the drug differs from the nearest analogues.

One of the important components of a contraceptive is levonorgestrel, which is a synthetic derivative of 19-nortestosterone. The substance exhibits activity that fully responds to the effect of taking endogenous progesterone, but the strength of the action is several times higher than that of the latter. This feature of levonorgestrel can significantly reduce its dose, protecting the woman's body from excessive influence of the injected substances.

Ethinyl estradiol is also present in tablets, which is nothing more than a synthetic analogue of endogenous estradiol. The above substances are supplemented with other components, the effect of which is not so significant.


The effectiveness of the drug can be assessed by hearing the opinion of users. What results does Rigavidon show? Reviews of women suggest that the pill can really be called reliable. Opinions of experts also confirm the effectiveness of contraceptives.

All contraceptives are assessed on a special scale, they are assigned one or another index using the Pearl method. The indicator "Rigevidon" is 0.1-0.9, which gives him the title of an independent drug that does not require additional measures to prevent unwanted pregnancy.

As noted by the patient gynecological consultations, the tablets give a reliable result. Таблетки противозачаточные «Ригевидон», отзывы о которых от акушеров-гинекологов носят в основном положительный характер, удивляют своей действенностью в первую очередь дам, испробовавших на себе влияние других средств или методик контрацепции.

Основное действие

How exactly does "Rigevidon" affect the organism? Feedback from users confirms that most of the changes take place without external manifestations. Experts also distinguish the following actions of the drug: suppression of ovulation, an increase in the viscosity of the cervical mucus, a decrease in the sensitivity of the endometrium to the blastocyst.

It is necessary to consider in more detail the mechanism of action of the drug "Rigevidon". Reviews of doctors will help to understand the contribution of each individual active ingredient that is part of the contraceptive.

How exactly does the drug work?

The following aspects can be highlighted:

  • blocking the release of releasing factors in the hypothalamus (namely, luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormone),
  • suppression of the secretion of gonadotropic and similar hormones by the pituitary gland,
  • follicle maturation slows down significantly, eventually it breaks.

Summing up, it can be noted that the active components of the drug in general inhibit the course of ovulation, the likelihood of fertilization, and as a result, the onset of pregnancy is practically reduced to zero.

In addition, the gestagenic element of the substance, levonorgestrel, increases the viscosity of the cervix secretion, which makes it difficult for sperm to penetrate into the uterus, and, in addition, because of the change in the texture of the endometrium, implantation of a fertilized egg interferes.

Additional effects
