|5||Contraception, irregular period||Shorter lighter period, no acne, breast growth||This pill was wonderful. It cleared up my skin within days of taking it. My periods were shorter and lighter with minimal cramping. My breasts also grew a bit. The only complaint is that I did get a lot of UTIs while on this pill and had never had them before. Don't know if there could be a link. My insurance stopped covering this brand so I have to switch. Hope to find something just as good.||F||18||1 years ||3/8/2015|
LORYNA (DROSPIRENONE; ETHINYL ESTRADIOL): This medication is a combination of 2 hormones: an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and a progestin (drospirenone). This product is used to prevent pregnancy. It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle. It also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. This medication also may be used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) or moderate acne if you have chosen to use birth control pills as your method of pregnancy prevention. Besides preventing pregnancy, birth control pills may make your periods more regular, decrease blood loss and painful periods, and decrease your risk of ovarian cysts. Using this medication does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia). (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
