    I had been on Yasmin for years and then was put on Yaz for my PMDD symptoms and loved it! However just recently (2 to 3 months) I have been given the generic brand (Gianvi) and I definitely noticed a change. I have ZERO sex drive, am constantly bloated, and my indigestion that I struggle with has got increasingly worse! I loved Yaz and was excited when they started making a cheaper, generic for ...

    I have been taking Gianvi in place of Yaz for months now and have had no side effects. I found it to be equally effective and I'm as satisfied with it as I was with Yaz. The price difference makes it even better! I didn't have problems with PMS or PMDD before switching, so I don't have any reports on how it helps with PMDD (or doesn't).

    Do not take this pill. It made me sicker than hell, ive been more irritable than i've ever been, and have been having axiety attacks that nearly put me in the hospital. I was on yaz for a year and a half and switched because of price. Trust me - the extra money is worth yaz.

    DO NOT TAKE THIS. I was on yaz for 2 years, and did fine, minus the final withdrawal. but this drug, by day 2 turned me into a mental case. COMPLETELY PSYCHOTICLY DEPRESSED, it's made me feel like life is nothing, and my boyfriend and i constantly fight and i'm this insecure, negative nutcase. this is a very bad birth control pill, and it does not have the same ingredient to combat PMDD. I ... Show Full Comment
