Comment:
I started taking Camila after I had my daughter 4 months ago. My doctor prescribed it because I'm still breastfeeding. I am very dissatisfied with it. I've been having a full week long period about every 2 weeks. It's very inconvenient to be on your period that often. Not to mention also that I've gained 10 lb since I started taking the pill and my hair has started to fall out. I& ... Show Full Comment

I would 0 star satisfaction if I could. Yes, it works as birth control BUT only because you're bleeding most of the time and can't have sex. I got my period twice in one month and have spotting in between. I'm not pregnant, I took various pregnancy tests and went to the doctor. I'm switching to gianvi.

I was on Camila for about 7 months after getting migraines on a pill with estrogen. At first it seemed okay, but as the months went on, I started getting terrible acne, gaining weight, and becoming very moody. I also started losing a LOT of hair. When I stopped taking the pill, I lost 7 pounds in a week without changing my diet or exercise regimen and my acne cleared up within a month.

I began using this because of my headaches/migraines which I don't get anymore thank god! My periods are very irregular. Last month I had what appeared to be two periods. My boobs get very sore, which I never experienced before. And the pressure and pain I get in my ovaries is extremely uncomfortable. This has happened every month since I started. I really want to change because the irregular ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took Camila for 3 years as birth control. I was prescribed this pill because I have migraine headaches with aphasia and couldn't take a pill with estrogen. I was always very careful about taking the pill on time (I used my cell phone alarm) and it proved to be effective. My biggest annoyance was the unpredictable periods. I would have a period then not have one for 6 weeks, than have one 2 w ... Show Full Comment
