    While it was easy to use this, it completely changed my energy, mood, and made me heavier longer when the point of taking it was to skip my period. I was prescribed to take it, skip placebos, and start a new pack. I was tired all the time, which I thought was from teaching, but I've been off it a couple weeks, and my energy is back, and I feel normal again. I didn't even want to try moving ...

    It was hard to rate this, as it is effective and easy to take. It's a pill, I take it with my daily allergy meds and it does its job preventing pregnancy. But holy cow do I hate this BC. On a prior pill, my periods would last barely 3 days and were so light I only needed one tampon a day. I just started month 4 of Vieva, and I'm on week three of my period and it's so heavy I have to ch ... Show Full Comment

    This was my first bc prescription. I was on it during my Spring semester in college and got it from student health. I loved it! I was worried about gaining weight or mood swings and neither really happened that I could notice (or my twin sister noticed). I did get acne, but nothing more than the amount I usually get. When you start bc its important to understand that there will be side effects. I ... Show Full Comment

    Taking this birth control was THE WORST DECISION. I’ve previously been on lutera & aviane (two other generics) but my pharmacy switched me to Vienva. Within 2 weeks I had more acne than I did in my teen years (I’m 23), HORRIBLE mood swings where I would get mad over literally nothing, my periods were so heavy & had the worst cramps. I did everything to get rid of my acne and it wouldn’t go ... Show Full Comment
