    Taking Lyza made me break out HORRIBLY. I tried it out for 3 months and then it was so bad that I stopped taking it. Itâ??s inceedible how much it damaged my skin in only 3 months.

    I usually have zero to little acne, a few months after taking this medication made me breakout horribly in places around my mouth, chin and forehead. My cystic acne was so bad. I had horrible mood swings. This pill wasn’t for me and now I am trying new birth control.

No side effects. Only thing i ... Show Full Comment

I ended up with a two bald patches on the left side of my head they where about 2 1/2â? X 1 1/2â? it was pretty bad and embarrassing... after I stopped taking them my hair started to grow back to normal. Iâ??ll mostly never take this birth control a ... Show Full Comment
