I took Loryna for about 9 months. My whole life shifted and I was moody and emotional all the time. My periods were awful I even had pieces of my uterus come out along with blood clots. Acne would come and go and terrible migraines. I definitely DO NOT recommend this for anyone. It maybe cheaper but I would rather pay more money and be myself with no migraines or my uterus falling out.

On the 2nd day of my period, the flow was extremely heavy to the point ... Show Full Comment

this birth control was TERRIBLE. I had been on sprintec for a year prior to switching to loryna and it was the worst mistake I have ever made. Not only did I have cramping and nausea, I started my period 2 weeks early and stayed on it for almost 3 weeks at a time. The bleeding was dark and heavy. This birth control also made me an emotional wreck, caused my boobs to grow extremely big, and also ga ... Show Full Comment
