Rigevidon as effective contraception?

Would using Rigevidon be a confidently effective form of contraception? I've been taking them for 2 months now and was wondering if it would be perfectly fine to use instead of condoms if it came down to it? Or would it be better to play it safer with just condoms?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
In terms of efficacy and pregnancy prevention, Rigevidon is better than condom use (condom use is associated with high failure rates). Consider being regular with its use as instructed. Avoid missing active pill intake. You may consider using back-up protection while having intercourse to have additional protection if worried about pregnancy. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance.
Take care.
