I was taking Amethia for 1,5 month and I started to experience spotting like blood cloths. During 1 week it got worse and I started to have vaginal bleeding as a regular menstruation. I am gonna call to my doctor. I gained 12 pounds and my mood like a crazy.

This is worse than just th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Was prescribed Seasonique by my OBGYN due to un pleasant side effects with other BC. It was significantly cheaper to go generic so I did. Was given Camrese. LOVED it! Felt better than I had in years! I did experience severe breast tenderness (seriously they felt as though they might fall off) and had some irritating break through bleeding. But the doc warned me of these and since I felt so great d ... Show Full Comment
