    Comment:
    I am commenting to warn you before taking Vienva. My doctor put me on Vienva because I complained about having a low sex drive. I took it for six months and completely regret it. I have never been SO depressed in my life. I have absolutely no motivation to go anywhere or do anything, which is abnormal of me. There are days where I will not get out of bed because of the extreme depression this has ... Show Full Comment

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS. This drug ruined a better half of the year, and I will never get that time back. I have been off of it for a bit now (switched to a NON-HORMONAL IUD). I am happy again, my hair is growing back (I was balding from Vienva), I am regaining all the friends I lost while acting crazy/depressed/weepy/fall-down-tired/irrational from the pill, my appetite is restored (I was non-stop eat ...

    I normally have a high tolerance for pain, but holy cow!! My cramps have been COMPLETELY UNBEARABLE! It had been almost 10 years since I had ever taken any pain killers (Tylenol, ibuprofen, etc.) but I'm taking them daily now. I stopped taking Vienva after the third day of terrible cramps. The cramps are still happening now, two days after I've stopped taking Vienva. I've also been ble ... Show Full Comment

    This is the worst BC I have ever taken! The last few weeks I have been anxious, depressed, moody, angry, on the verge of crying and so tired that I feel like I have no motivation to do anything besides lay on the couch. I didn’t know what was going on with me until I read these reviews and realized that it is this pill doing this to me! I stopped taking this yesterday and I will never go back. I h ...
