Hi all

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis recently and as my medication is not compatible with pregnancy, I decided to start taking the pill again just in case.

I was put back on to rigevidon which I’d taken before I had children. I’ve only been taking it for 6 days and my period hasn’t started yet but I’m so angry and sad. This is the only thing that’s changed recently so i think it’s a side effect of the pill. If I stop taking it now, what can I expect to happen to my cycle (period is due any day now)?

I had to come off that pill for similar reasons. My periods carried on as normal. I then fell pregnant 4 months later
