How Camrese Works?
Camrese is effective because it works in three ways. First, it prevents sperm from reaching the egg by thickening the cervical mucus. Then it creates a thin uterine wall so any eggs that are fertilized by sperm don't attach and instead pass through the body. Finally, it prevents ovulation, so there are no eggs to fertilize anyway. Patients need to take this pill at the same time every day for it to be effective. They also need to store Camrese in a cool, dry place where the pills won't get damaged.
How to Get Camrese?
Camrese is widely available in most pharmacies across the United States. This birth control pill is fairly affordable and is mostly, if not entirely, covered by health insurance. If your health insurance doesn't cover Camrese or you don't have health insurance, Nurx may be able to find an affordable birth control option for you. Before taking Camrese, you need to consult your doctor. This form of birth control is prescription only and a medical professional can decide if it is right for you.
Does Camrese Cause Weight Gain?
Every woman is affected differently by Camrese and you may notice some weight gain as a result of the hormones. However, most women only gain about 10 pounds, if any weight at all, as a result of the pill.
Does Camrese Help With Acne?
While Camrese is not FDA-approved to treat acne, you may notice that your acne symptoms lesson as a result of this birth control.
Does Camrese Stop Your Period?
You may have shorter and lighter periods while taking Camrese, but it will likely not stop entirely. However, some women experienced periods every 12 weeks instead of every month while on the pill.
Are There Any Precautions?
Always consult your doctor before taking Camrese or any other form of birth control pill. Let them know if you are on any other medications, have additional health problems, or have allergies. They may recommend a different pill that has fewer side effects and works with your existing medical conditions.
What Are the Side effects?
Everyone has different reactions to medication and birth control is no different. Your side effects on Camrese can include bloating, weight gain, swelling of the feet and ankles, breast tenderness, and heightened emotions. Talk to your doctor if these become more severe and interfere with your daily life. Additionally, there are some known side effects of Camrese that are severe. Stop taking the medication immediately if you experience dizziness, have difficulty breathing, severe headaches, abdominal pain, unexpected heavy bleeding, pain in your chest, or yellowing of the skin and eyes.
Camrese becomes less effective when not taken every day, which can increase your chances of getting pregnant. Stop taking Camrese and consult your doctor if you become pregnant. There are other instances when Camrese may be less effective. If you take this contraceptive with other medication, it could make the side effects worse or cancel the medication out entirely. Camrese is also less effective if you experience nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea shortly after taking it. Your body may not have absorbed the hormones and you should switch to backup birth control in the short term.
