I am an 18yr old college student. I have been on Yaz since I was 16. When my doctor messed up and prescribed me the Generic version GIANVI he claimed that there was no difference between the two (except for the much more affordable price) Honestly, I have been on GIANVI for 2 months and I have been MISERABLE. DEPRESSED. FEELING WORTHLESS. I CRY FOR NO REASON. HAVE NO MOTIVATION OR DRIVE TO DO MY S ... Show Full Comment

I switched to Gianvi from yaz because of the price after yaz stopped that cool $25 program. I wasn’t interested in paying over $50 for birth control. I must admit, I was freaking out after I read the reviews on this site. My doctor calmed me down after I called her and she was right. There is one positive review on this site that I read that gave me courage to try. Therefore, ladies I have to echo ... Show Full Comment

I am now on my period but starting Beyaz tonight. ... Show Full Comment

I've been on this for a little over a month. It started out ok and I was pleased because I didn't gain weight or become really bloated. However, in the last couple of weeks I am sick to my stomach all the time and I've become incredibly emotional. I am having what seem to be panic attacks, temper tantrums, and extreme mood swings (I'm normally a quiet and calm person). I'm ... Show Full Comment

Gianvi effected the way my heart was beating! I took Yaz for three years, and when the generic came out for it, I switched to save money. After being on it for three months, I became fatiqued and exhausted. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, and I never would have though it was my Pill. I went to my doctor, and they ran tests and came up empty handed. After examinging my pulse and h ... Show Full Comment
