I have been on Yaz and then Gianvi for nearly 6 years now with absolutely no side effects. When my pharmacy switched me to Loryna earlier this year I thought that I would respond in the same way I did to the first generic of yaz, Gianvi... WRONG. I have had anxiety attacks, acne (which I never had before), felt depressed, snapped at people for no reason and worst of all gained 3-5lbs of what must ... Show Full Comment

I pretty much have the same story as everyone else. I was on YAZ for a long time then about a year ago the generic GIAVANI came out and when I went to refill my prescription last month, Medco sent me Loryna.

However I'm beyond bloated to the point where I could wear my maternity clot ... Show Full Comment

This is the worst birth control I have ever experienced. For years I have been on Yaz was very satisfied-- for once, a birth control with zero side effects! I loved it. I then switched to generic Gianvi, also with no side effects. Recently I had to change pharmacies (my insurance ended their contract with Walgreens) and Rite Aid only carries Loryna, so that's what I've been on for a fe ... Show Full Comment

I have never bothered to write a review for anything in my life. But this product is so awful I felt I had to. I was previously on Yaz, and then switched to Giavani without any problems. My insurance company switched me to Loryna without telling me. It causes me to gain about eight pounds about a week before my period. Then, after my period I lose the weight. I am continually going through each ... Show Full Comment
