I have not been diagnosed with Endo or PCOS, but I have been on the pill since I was 15 due to very heavy bleeding and cramps.

I was not thrilled with Gianvi either. I was on it for 3 months at which point I promptly switched back to name brand. After I stopped taking it, my hormones were so out of whack during the switch I broke out all over my face, back, and neck, followed by 5 days of unbearable cramps and 8 days of bleeding. I would NOT recommend it at all. I’ve been fine for years and after those three months I have an ultrasound scheduled to check for cysts.

I’ve been wondering for years if I had cysts since my mom has PCOS and my grandma has Endo. When on Yaz, I was fine, no pain, 2 day periods, no breakouts, nothing… now? My neck and back are still healing, and I’m still having ovary pain, although I’ve had a significant improvement after switching back. I would switch back to name brand ASAP. I only saved like $10 for 3 months worth anyways.

I switched to Gianvi in September. I had been on Yaz for almost 3 years. I haven’t had any issues, but I also haven’t really been paying much attention. My gyno told me it would work the same, so I haven’t second guessed it. I’m going to pay close attention to my body this week and I’ll let you know. 

I sure hope Gianvi isn’t harmful!!! I’ve been on it for almost a year!
