    I was on this birth control for 13 days and it caused so much anxiety, depression, and pain in my life. I had been in a funk and felt like my emotions were uncontrollable but could not figure out why. This pill made me feel like an absolute crazy person and almost caused me a break up.

    My gynecologist switched me to Vienva after I expressed concerns of a low libido to her while on the Nuva Ring. Switching was a huge mistake. Iâ??ve never struggled with depression before in my life, but while on this drugs I felt feelings of hopelessness and social anxiety - I even lingered into suicidal thoughts. This may have been amplified by the fact that it caused horrible cystic acne a ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on the same hormones and dosage for 6 years now and have been switched by my pharmacy about 3 times, because I use the generic for insurance purposes. I've never experienced an issue with previous switches until I was given the Vienva. About 2 weeks into my cycle, after taking my pill every day at the same time, I experienced bleeding (not just spotting, like a full period 9-10 d ... Show Full Comment

    I haven’t noticed how bad Vienva is to my body until I read these reviews. I was taking Aviane before but my pharmacy switched me to Vienva and my life has basically gone downhill. I started having depression which causes the major fatigue that is so annoying, I also have sore breasts and vaginal dryness. I will definitely be switching back to Aviane or another brand because this one has got me t ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Last month I was randomly switched from Orsythia (like so many other women) to Vienva because my pharmacy no longer carries Orsythia. I was told they are the exact same so I started taking it. Worst decision I have ever made! I started bleeding during the second week and didnâ��t stop until my actual period ended. On top of that, my appetite has been garbage and Iâ ... Show Full Comment
