I use to take Gianvi, and what I can remember, I loved it. I am now taking lory a and after almost two years and reading all of these reviews I have realized I am not crazy! I have lost my sex drive, gained over 40 pounds in the past year and a half, and have crazy mood swings. I have never had such low self esteem. No matter what I do, I can't lose this weight and I've been blaming it on ... Show Full Comment

I had no idea that birth control could cause all of these issues! I have been on it for about 6 months and have zero sex drive. I thought it was me and my boyfriend has been blaming himself. I have gained 10 pounds since being on it and thought that it was just my fault. This is the first time I've ever been on the pill and the first time having sex. I have mild yeast infections right before ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I'm surprised that this pill has been so horrible for some people. When I first used this pill, it worked great for me. The only side effect is that my breasts were a little sore. However, there was a mix up with my prescription so my next pack was Gianvi. That brand was horrible for me. I was moody all the time and I got so angry at little things. Finally my next pack I was able to switch bac ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on Loryna for about 5 months now. It has been effective in the fact that I am not pregnant but the reason I switched to Loryna was so that it would help my acne. I would say that my acne is not any better than it was before I started birth control so I was not satisfied with that. Also, this BC made my periods start early and last longer than usual. If I had sex then I would start blee ... Show Full Comment
