Loryna birth control pill reviews

I went on Loryna initially as a generic form of Yaz for my PMDD symptoms. I would bounce daily from full on rage to the deepest depression within a few minutes before being on these meds. Now everything is much more even and I feel that I can actually function in my day to day life. However, I have noticed that it has completely erased my sex drive to the point where I have to psych myself up for sex with my partner starting at least a day in advance to even feel a bit of desire. Before Loryna, I would be ready to go at the drop of a hat. I also have experienced a pretty significant increase in dryness, which I never had a problem with before, and I do not believe that age should be a factor in this just yet.

Used for 3 - 6 mo

  •  3 weeks ago

  •  Stopped using

I felt hungry all the time, gained weight (15 lbs over the 3 months I was on it), and had extremely elevated blood pressure which was not common for me — it was 140/96 at the highest, from the time I woke up to bed time. I had anxiety, high heart rate, and night terrors, again very uncommon for me.

I started taking this bc I have PMDD and also wanted to stop my period all together. I have no interest in getting pregnant. This pill was to stop my period and it did just that. I feel great on it.
