    I was taking Yaz for a year and decided to try the generic Loryna for cost purposes. I started on Loryna 3 weeks ago and I'm miserable! I have been tracking how I feel every day and I'm pretty much fatigued, irritated and depressed every day since I started it. I haven't had any spotting or other problems so far but I feel like my emotions are out of control and I'm already on an a ... Show Full Comment

    I am on my 3rd pack of Loryna. The supposed amount of time it takes for your body to get used to birth control is by 3 months/3rd pack. Luckily, I felt used to Loryna by the 2nd month. I'm 18 years old, about 110 lbs and 5'2". When I talked to my doctor about birth control I told her that I didn't want to gain weight and I didn't want to experience break outs. She recommended ...

    I have been on Loryna for going on 3 years now. I have gained no weight, it has actually helped my acne(besides the usual PMS breakouts), and it has not affected my health over all. I really love this birth control. It is easy to use, and it has been extremely effective. Once your body gets used to it your period will only last 2-3 days. Which is awesome! I would recommend.

    Comment:
    The only reason I am giving this a low rating in satisfaction is because it's causing cystic acne all around my nose and on my forehead. I've been taking it for a few weeks and it's only getting worse. I've tried washing my face more but nothing helps. Since its cystic they pimples can't be popped either. They just look disgusting and it's been diminishing my confidence sin ... Show Full Comment
