I was put on Gianvi 3 years ago to take with Accutane and continued to take it after the Accutane treatment concluded 6-7 months later. I never had issues and was switched this last month to Vestura. It is NOTHING like Gianvi. I have gained weight where I haven't gained in 2 years, my mood levels are everywhere, and I am constantly tired & lethargic when I am not normally that way.

Comment:
After taking Yaz and then Gianvi for almost 4 years, I was recently switched to Vestura and told the medication was "virtually identical." After spending 2 days in the hospital because I lost so much blood (and at a time when I was not supposed to have my period), I can safely say that my reaction to Vestura was not "virtually identical" to my experience with Yaz or Gianvi.

Comment:
I have never before felt compelled to write a review but taking Vestura was such a horrible experience I think others should be warned. My pharmacy switched me from Yaz to Vestura and I didn't expect to notice any difference; however, Vestura was a nightmare. It was effective in that I didn't get pregnant but very ineffective at regulating my period. I would sporadically have extremely ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Started taking this birth control after the discontinuing of gianvi. The first day I took this birth control I got extremely sick. Constant throwing up (blood included), nauseous and real bad chest pain. I stopped the pill for the next two days because I was too sick to hold food down. The third day I was feeling fine and decided to take the pill since I got over what I once thought was food poiso ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking Yaz/Gianvi for about three years now, (not as a contraceptive but to treat my "dysmenorrhea" which is the medical term for severely painful menstrual cramps). For whatever reason the pharmacy switched me to Vestura last month and assured me that it was another generic for Yaz just like Gianvi. IT IS NOTHING LIKE GIANVI. The week I was on Vestura was the WORST WEEK OF M ... Show Full Comment
