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

I started with Yaz and was on it for about two years. I thought it was okay but my insurance switched me to Loryna about a year ago and I noticed a big difference-my mood never crashed, my acne stayed at bay, I had a sex drive, and no cramps/bloating. I recently had to switch back to Yaz and absolutely hate it. Remember everyone is different!

DO NOT USE THIS! I have been taking Gianvi for a while now (and loved it)but my pharmacy switched me to Loryna without me knowing so I figured it was all the same...WRONG! Within a few days, my face broke out horribly, and I mean like cyst like acne, not just common pimples. I just called my doctor and they said they didn't request the switch so I'm pretty irritated at the pharmacy. I WILL ... Show Full Comment

Age: 22 Weight: 135 Height: 5'7'' Asian No Heath Problems It definitely prevented pregnancy, but it decreased my sex drive to the point where I had no desire for it what so ever. If you're not in a sexually active relationship this might be an okay pill for you. The only positive thing is it decreased testosterone levels which made me less aggressive and moody (I use to cry ... Show Full Comment

If you value your sanity, run! In a week and a half this pill managed to turn me into a complete crazy person covered in cystic acne! All I wanted to do was eat, sleep and cry. After a week and a half of misery and embarrassment from the worst acne ever, I called my doctor and she changed me immediately to beyaz. Hopefully, my experience with beyaz will be much more pleasant.
