I used to take Gianvi and was very happy with it. Recently my insurance switched me to Loryna. I have been taking it for 3 months and I have gained 6-8 lbs, even though i have been eating better and working out more than i did before i started the drug. SWITCHING TOMORROW AND I CANT WAIT!!

the worst birthcontrol i have ever used. i have gained about 8 pounds, have had breakouts around my chin area (and im talking about noticable nasty zits), crazy mood swings and i have skipped my period for two months but im not pregnant. so it will leave you guessing when your next period will be and along with that you still get horrible cramps and bloating at random times during your cycle.

I was on Yaz for a couple of years and was completely satisfied. When Gianvi became available, I tried it and felt even better. A few months ago my mail order pharmacy switched me to Loryna, and now I feel terrible. I have been experiencing moodiness (an understatement!), fatigue, breakouts, and cramps.
