    I love this pill! it comes in 3 month packs and you only get your periods once at the end. I never had spotting and I had easy short periods. I stopped taking while my husband and I tried for a baby, and after our son was born, I went rite back on it, happy as can be. Best part, since you only get your period if you take the yellow pills.. I could plan WHEN I wanted it to come.... !! if I saw that ... Show Full Comment

    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! Didn't notice any change (except a whole lot more money in my pocket! ... Show Full Comment

    I had been taking Seasonique for years, but once the generic Camrese came on the market, my pharmacy has not had Seasonique in stock on multiple occasions, forcing me to take Camrese instead. Camrese has been effective for birth control, but after two weeks on it I get spotting that does not stop for the rest of the pill pack. For this reason I would not recommend it.

    I've been on Camrese for about 9 months now. The first three months were great, and I loved having a period once every blue moon. I also felt like it might have increased my sex drive. However, the next pack I started breakthrough bleeding the first week of the third month, and it didn't stop until I went off for the month. I decided to give it one more go, and the same exact thing is now ... Show Full Comment
