After reading most of these reviews, I no longer feel like I'm going crazy. The mood swings, the hunger, the constant underlying sadness, the breaking out... This pill does not work well with my system. I was on YAZ for about six years with no problems. I was sent Loryna and decided to give it a try for 3 months. I would rather be on no birth control than on Loryna. I've had a weight gain ... Show Full Comment

I would not recommend this BC at all. To anyone. I was switched from Gianvi because health insurance wouldn't pay for it anymore. I had mood swings, loss of interest, snapped at everyone. I wasn myself- these pills caused me to have ar real breakdown- I had to take time out. Wouldn't recommend to anyone hoping to keep their sanity

I pretty much agree with all of the reviews I read about this drug. I prefer Gianvi and have requested to be given that instead. Sex drive did come back but it came with acne and food cravings. I feel like a bottomless pit and I'm afraid I will gain weight if I continue to take it. I've never had an acne problem until I started taking this. I was hoping I'd be the exception to the rule ...

I would definitely recommend this BC to anyone! I switched from being on the patch(horrible experience!) to LoLoestrin FE (which I got horrible headaches from so I had to stop) to the POP pill (I just kept getting my period for this one plus I was very moody) and then to Loryna. I actually enjoy this BC and I do feel a lot happier on it; it really helps the PMDD. My boyfriend has noticed a differ ... Show Full Comment
