I actually switched to this birth control because my other BC wasn't helping control my acne. So far, this has been really great for me. The only complaint would be that my period doesn't start until the last day of the sugar pills, which is odd but I guess it doesn't really matter (though sometimes I get nervous!!). I've been on it about 6 months now. So far, no mood swings. In fa ... Show Full Comment

I was switched to Loryna when the pricing changed for Yaz. I know that the generic is supposed to be the same, but it has not been a smooth transition. I spotted the first couple weeks of taking it and then started my period a week early.

I have nothing but positive things to say about it, thankfully! Sorry to all the ladies who didn't have the s ... Show Full Comment

I was switched by Florida Blue to Loryna (because it's a generic)from Beyaz and have been having terrible mood swings and have gained 5 pounds in less than three weeks of starting my first pack of Loryna. I could almost immediately tell a difference. They say that the ingredients are the same as Yaz.... no one can tell me that this is the same birth control pill as Yaz, based on my mood swin ...

My experience has been similar to most people's here: Loryna made me have crazy mood swings. I would cry several times a week. My moods were uncontrollable. I have been on Loryna for 4 months and I bled at least every two weeks. I'm done with Lorena.
