i like the rest of you was switched to loryna from cvs. It's been a miserable ride. I never really thought that all my issues were because of my birth control pill though. I've seeing a neurologist for my migraines and chalked it up to my meds for that. I went to see my go about the bleeding and it was like it was no big deal. So I just continued to take it. Now I'm thinking of switchi ... Show Full Comment

Like everyone I was on Gianvi and got switched to Loryna and it has taken me about 9 months to realize this thing has driven me crazy. I get mild yeast infections all the time, am overly aggressive, feel fatigued, have gained weight and blow up like a balloon from bloating before my period. Please stay away from this drug, it will drive you and everyone around you crazy.

Comment:
Other than this pill being effective in preventing pregnancy everything else I suffered while taking it was awful. My insurance wouldn't cover Yaz (which I wanted to take to help with PMDD) so I took this pill for 9 months and by the end I literally was numb during sex and/or it was painful(this has never happened to me on any other pill, and before the pill my sex drive was uninhibited). I ha ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am 23 years old and avoiding taking the pill for so many years because I was terrified of gaining weight and the negative side effects. When I started struggling with hormonal acne that is very painful and embarrassing, I decided it was time. I only took loryna for a month and the first 3 weeks I was spotting/ bleeding and would get weird cramps around the time before I would be due for my pill ... Show Full Comment
