    I just started taking this pill and now that I know after reading some reviews that I'm not going crazy!! I have terrible nausea, bloating, and my emotions can change in the span of a half a second -- I can go from being okay to just completely bitter and rude to crying uncontrollably the next. I hate it. I thought there was something wrong with me. I've stopped immediately. I just want a ... Show Full Comment

    I was on gianvi and was switched in March 2015 to this pill because the Gianvi was $60 with my insurance and the Loryna was free. I had no problems with the Gianvi. But with the Loryna I began to gain weight, become bloated, I had no energy and was tired all day. I gained 25 pounds in 7 months and never gained weight the 3 years I was on Gianvi. I would not recommend Loryna to anyone.

    This is my first experience with birth control, I've passed the trial period with it (3 months) and everything is going just fine. I take it at the same time every day, never skipping doses and so far no bad side-effects! At first I had some breast tenderness and I was a bit moody, but once I'd been on the pill a full month, things went back to normal and I'm feeling and acting like my ... Show Full Comment

    I am thuroughly pleased with this medicine so far. It is my third month taking these pills and I have to disagree with a lot of these reviews. I have not experienced any weight gain, acne, delayed/missed periods. In fact, I have taken 3 different pills prior to this and it happens to be my favorite one. I have my personality and good mood back, my skin is cleared, and I am not pregnant so I really ... Show Full Comment

    I use to take Gianvi, and what I can remember, I loved it. I am now taking lory a and after almost two years and reading all of these reviews I have realized I am not crazy! I have lost my sex drive, gained over 40 pounds in the past year and a half, and have crazy mood swings. I have never had such low self esteem. No matter what I do, I can't lose this weight and I've been blaming it on ... Show Full Comment
