    I have been on Vestura for about a month but I have been at the lowest low that I can remember. Serious depression/suicicdal thoughts, anxiety and shortness with my patient and caring boyfriend. I've turned into a different person, I cannot take another day on it. I originally started it as a means of family planning, but my derm also recommended YAZ for my skin and this is the generic my phar ... Show Full Comment

    I was on Gianvi for 2 years and had no problems at all. Walgreens stopped carrying Gianvi a couple of months ago and switched me to Vestura. Wow I have gone crazy since switching.

    I had resisted discontinuing brand name Yaz for years, but in the last few months felt forced to due to increasing cost of non generic medications related to my insurance plan. The first week and a half on Vestura were fine... I didn't notice anything significantly different. During the second and third week I had some break through bleeding and mild cramping. Definitely not typical for me, ... Show Full Comment

The first time I took vestura I got terrible headaches (had run out of yaz and needed to fill a prescription out of state). For some reason this time around (after being on yaz for three months in between) it's been great. I noticed two things: no h ... Show Full Comment
