I switched to Camrese after taking Depo for 13 years. First period didn't come, next one should be in 4 weeks. We'll see. So far so good. No spotting, no cramping, no acne (but I've never had acne), I have had weight loss and increased sex drive though.

Comment:
I have been taking Camrese for over a year now. I really enjoy only having my period 4 times a year. Saves a lot on buying tampons.

My sex drive has been lowered as a result of Camrese, but other than that I would recommend it.

When I decided to go back on the pill, I asked my doctor about the 3-months cycle pill like Seasonique, and she suggested Camrese. I was hesitant to take a generic because wh ... Show Full Comment

It was going well the first 2 pack. Started the 3rd one and I felt bloated, pain in my lower belly and back. Im stopping the pill right now, I had 2 more weeks to go but I don't see what else can cause those symptoms plus a 10 lbs weight gain. I'm a personal trainer so I can tell u, my diet and training regiment are on point. I'm very disappointed. I like the fact to have 4 period a ye ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking Camrese for almost 3 months & I'm not happy. At all. I've been on worse pills, but this is still pretty unbearable. I have become depressed while taking this, to the point where I cry myself to sleep and want to remain in bed all day. Sometimes I go a week without a shower because of how bad the depression has gotten. Also for the past month, I have been bleeding non ... Show Full Comment
