I have been on Gianvi for awhile and loved it. Recently received Loryna from CVS and after 4 days of taking it, I have severe breakouts. I stopped taking it immediately and am switching back to Gianvi. Steer clear!!!

I have been on this for 5 months and it is great no acne, mood swings, or weight gain in fact a little bit of weight loss. The only thing wrong with this pill is that my period was absent for 2 months but then it was regular. so far so good and it is better than Gianvi.

I haven't had a breakout in years, within a week of starting Loryna I had actual acne cysts that left pockmarks. I've never had an acne cyst in my life!

Okay the birth control works, but like the other reviewers even after less than a month on Loryna--horrible breakouts, emotional mood swings, lowered sex drive, just do not feel like myself.
