Comment:
I was on gianvi and was switched in March 2015 to this pill because the Gianvi was $60 with my insurance and the Loryna was free. I had no problems with the Gianvi. But with the Loryna I began to gain weight, become bloated, I had no energy and was tired all day. I gained 25 pounds in 7 months and never gained weight the 3 years I was on Gianvi. I would not recommend Loryna to anyone.

This is my first experience with birth control, I've passed the trial period with it (3 months) and everything is going just fine. I take it at the same time every day, never skipping doses and so far no bad side-effects! At first I had some breast tenderness and I was a bit moody, but once I'd been on the pill a full month, things went back to normal and I'm feeling and acting like my ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am thuroughly pleased with this medicine so far. It is my third month taking these pills and I have to disagree with a lot of these reviews. I have not experienced any weight gain, acne, delayed/missed periods. In fact, I have taken 3 different pills prior to this and it happens to be my favorite one. I have my personality and good mood back, my skin is cleared, and I am not pregnant so I really ... Show Full Comment

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

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
