I started on Seasonique before camrese was available. The first 3month pack, I experienced nearly constant spotting. It was very annoying. However, after that I haven't had a period. I also had the usual peri-menstrual mood problems about 7 weeks in, but only the first pack. It's been about 2 years now and I LOVE it!
