The only reason I put a one for satisfaction is because 0 wasn't an option. I have been on zovia now for almost 4 years, and at first it was okay. Then the panic attack started, which I had NO clue this medication could play a part in. Then there's the weight gain... OMG! Since I have been on this medication I have gained a total of over 50lbs!! Yeah. 50! Not only from the medication but ... Show Full Comment

I started taking birth control to control my painful periods - Zovia is my second attempt at relief and I AM RELIEVED! My periods have switched from very painful bleeding for 4-5 days, to painless bleeding for 2 days. I initially gained a few pounds, but that all came off after I increased my water intake. Unlike the BC I took before Zovia, I actually have a healthy sex drive with this pill. I ... Show Full Comment

I have been on Zovia for over 5 years now. I've never had any serious problems. I occasionally have spotting between periods (which is more to do with me than the medication) and I did increase a drop in my sex drive when I first started taking it. It has not returned to normal. My skin cleared significantly and I on this pill I know within a few hours of when I'll start and stop. I've ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am 21 and have been on Zovia for a month and a half and it has been absolutely awful. (This isn't my first birth control pill) I have never experienced this kind of bloating or insatiable hunger when on a pill. I constantly want to eat and rarely feel full or satisfied. I am bloated most of the time. I exercise for 60 minutes five days a week and maintain a healthy diet and I have still gain ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
First I need to note that I have terrible anxiety and have had it for a long time, but before I took Zovia, I was able to controll it. Ladys, if you have anxiety, please refrain from using Zovia. Ever since I've taken this pill, my simple one to two week panic attacks turned into an all nighter every single night, feeling like I'm not going to wake up in the morning. Literally I felt like ...
