I am so glad I read these reviews! After being happily on YAZ for a year, my doctor put me on this, saying it was the same. It is not! My chin has been breaking out, I have cramps during the middle of my cycle, I'm emotional, and gained a few pounds. After reading thay almost everyone else has gad similar problems, I am quitting immediately. I just hope it doesnt take too long to get out of my ... Show Full Comment

I was on Gianvi for awhile to reduce my heavy flow and control acne and was happy with Gianvi. My mail order pharmacy switched my refill order to Loryna without notifying me and for 2 months now, I have been having bleeding and having blood clots while on the pill and have experienced weight gain.

I was taking Yaz for a year and was switched to Gianvi which was fine and got lighter periods regularly. Since being switched to Loryna I have missed at least 3 or 4 periods in the past couple months, not pregnant, so it's doing its job.. But like everyone else said weight gain and loss in sex drive. I don't recommend it unless you're fine with guessing when your next period will be!

I was on Yaz and then Gianvi with no issues. My insurance refilled my perscription with Loryna without notifying me. I took it and since then have gained weight, alot of spotting and had breakouts. I have been on the same workout(5x a week) and eating since before so the weight gain is completely unexplained. Also, never had issues with the spotting and cramps before. I will be switching ASAP.

I took Yaz with no troubles at all. Then I used Gianvi(no problems with that either) until my pharmacy stopped carrying it and changed to Loryna only. I took it for 3 months and it was terrible. I had break through bleeding starting in the middle of the month that continued intermittently until my period started and it always came 4-5 days before my pack of pills had even run out.
