Before i toom this pill I weighed 135 pounds....not even two months later I now weigh 145 pounds and am bloated and constantly hungry and tired. I workout at least three times a week and I work at a gym. I am moody and the first month I wanted to cry about everything.not happy with this at all. As far as ... Show Full Comment

    Like everyone I was on Gianvi and got switched to Loryna and it has taken me about 9 months to realize this thing has driven me crazy. I get mild yeast infections all the time, am overly aggressive, feel fatigued, have gained weight and blow up like a balloon from bloating before my period. Please stay away from this drug, it will drive you and everyone around you crazy.

    Like most reviewers, my pharmacy switched me to Loryna. Loryna did great things for my skin, but I started bleeding profusely every time I had sex. I ultimately switched to Zarah, another generic yaz, and I haven't had any spotting/bleeding issues since.

    Other than this pill being effective in preventing pregnancy everything else I suffered while taking it was awful. My insurance wouldn't cover Yaz (which I wanted to take to help with PMDD) so I took this pill for 9 months and by the end I literally was numb during sex and/or it was painful(this has never happened to me on any other pill, and before the pill my sex drive was uninhibited). I ha ... Show Full Comment

    I am 23 years old and avoiding taking the pill for so many years because I was terrified of gaining weight and the negative side effects. When I started struggling with hormonal acne that is very painful and embarrassing, I decided it was time. I only took loryna for a month and the first 3 weeks I was spotting/ bleeding and would get weird cramps around the time before I would be due for my pill ... Show Full Comment
