    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

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.

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

    I just got switched to Vestura bc a month ago. I was using Gianvi, have no idea why the pharmacy switched it but I very much dislike Vestura. I had a horrible week when I was on my period...anxiety, mood swings, depression. I feel lathargic and probably gained some weight. I just finished the pack and I'm never taking it again. Going back to my doctor and getting a new prescription.
