I was on Gianvi for years and never had a problem, I loved it! Last month CVS switched me to Loryna (I had no idea)and it is the worst thing that has happened to me in awhile. I have horrible mood swings, cramps, acne (I've never had a problem with acne until now), weight gain and I cry FOR NO REASON AT ALL! My fiance immediately knew that it was the new birth control because it is extremely o ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking Loryna for 2.5 months since my insurance no longer covered Beyaz (which I was very satisfied with).

I actually switched to this birth control because my other BC wasn't helping control my acne. So far, this has been really great for me. The only complaint would be that my period doesn't start until the last day of the sugar pills, which is odd but I guess it doesn't really matter (though sometimes I get nervous!!). I've been on it about 6 months now. So far, no mood swings. In fa ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was switched to Loryna when the pricing changed for Yaz. I know that the generic is supposed to be the same, but it has not been a smooth transition. I spotted the first couple weeks of taking it and then started my period a week early. My cycle was always very consistent on Yaz (and I did not have any issues with it), so I am not sure why I am not adjusting to Loryna. I have not had any moo ... Show Full Comment
