Comment:
Over the course of 5 years, I've tried a range of different birth control pills including Ortho Tri-Cyclen & Loestrin. The former caused me to gain over 10lbs in water weight. The latter I took only briefly due to the intense emotional havoc it wreaked on my psyche 2 summers ago. I've taken Gianvi since (WONDERFUL!!!!), but was switched to Vestura when Walgreens lost their contract wit ... Show Full Comment

Like others I was given Vestura in place of my usual pill, Gianvi, which I had been doing well on. The only good thing about Vestura is the fact that is prevents pregnancy...otherwise it's been a nightmare.

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. Extreme depression, anxiety and panic attacks (especially the week before my period)! I have never suffered from anything like that before and it was life changing. I feel completely out of control of my emoitions. Also ... Show Full Comment
