    I started Camrese after coming off of Depo Provera, which stopped my periods for three months when it wore off. So far Camrese has lowered the count and size of my ovarian cysts, which is wonderful, and has been an effective form of birth control for me. The only negative thing I have to say is that I have had a definite increase in body acne and body hair since I started it, but it's more of ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Camrese for about 6 months now and have had to split the pack to 2 months at a time because my mood was suffering. I am fine for the first 6 weeks then in week 7 I get VERY emotional, experience panic attacks, cry all the time, and feel very depressed. I am thinking of switching back to a monthly pill.

    I saw the bad reviews and i was weary about taking this pill, but surprisingly i had no side effects and its worked wonderful. We must remember that medication works different on everyone. Not because someone had a bad reaction it means everyone else will. Try it and see for yourself.

    I was on seasonique for about a year, then switched due to insurance reasons. I spotted in the beginning but haven't had an issue in over 9 months. Camrese is definitely day/time sensitive, but that just comes down to me being responsible about it. The only thing I do note is that I feel when I do get my period my hormones are in overdrive. Sorry to be blunt, but it's caused my libido to ... Show Full Comment

    I was previously taking seasonique for two years but switched two camrese because my insurance would no longer cover seasonique. I've been on camrese for three months now and since I began the new pills I started developing acne as well as spots of melasma on my face. I am confused to why I would be having these side effects when my pharmacist explained to me that camrese is "identical&qu ... Show Full Comment
