What is Camrese birth control?

Camrese is an extended-cycle biphasic combined birth control pill. Let’s break that down. Your typical birth control pill comes in a pack of 28. Camrese comes in a pack of 91. That’s the “extended-cycle” bit — you’re extending the length of time you’re taking active hormones. This means you’ll get your period every 3 months instead of every month.

Your typical birth control pill is also monophasic: you get one (mono) dose of hormones in all your active pills. Camrese is biphasic so you get two (bi) doses of hormones throughout the month. This is thought to more naturally mimic your body’s cycle, and can lower the risk of side effects.

Combined birth control contains both of the hormones you’ll find in birth control: progestin and estrogen. And in this case, it comes in the form of a pill you take every day.

So Camrese is an extra-big pack of pills. You’ll take it for three months before having your period. It’s got both progestin and estrogen, and the amounts change over the course of the month. We think it’s a pretty great birth control.

What is Camrese Lo?

Camrese Lo is an option if you prefer an even lower dose of hormones. Generally, a birth control is considered low dose if it has less than .03mg of estrogen.

Regular Camrese has .03mg of ethinyl estradiol (an estrogen) in the first 84 pills and .01mg in the last 7 pills.

Camrese Lo has .02mg of ethinyl estradiol in the first 84 pills and .01mg in the last 7 pills. It also has a little bit less levonorgestrel, the progestin, which is only in the first 84 pills.

Some women may benefit from taking a lower-dose birth control. Talk to the doctor during your consultation to see if Camrese Lo is right for you.

How Camrese works

When taken “perfectly” — that’s without skipping pills or taking them late — Camrese is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. Here’s how.

The hormones in Camrese are synthetic versions of hormones already in your body. By changing your hormone levels, Camrese is able to stop your body from preparing for pregnancy. It thickens the mucus in your cervix, making it difficult for sperm to reach an egg and fertilize it. It keeps the uterine lining from growing thicker, so the egg won’t attach and develop. And it stops ovulation, so no egg is even released by the ovary. It’s a pretty good system for keeping you protected.

How to take Camrese

Take Camrese at the same time every day. None of the pills in your pack are inactive (without hormones) so it’s important you don’t skip a pill. Before starting Camrese, pick a time that works for you and your schedule, every day of the week.

Most women take Camrese with a sip of water but if you experience any nausea or stomach upset this way, try having your daily pill with a snack or small meal.

Your Camrese pack comes with 91 total pills. It’s in an extended-cycle pack which looks like three conventional birth control packs attached to each other. The first two will have 28 pills (four weeks) in each of them and the last pack has an extra week of estrogen-only pills. That’s when you’ll have your period, before starting a new extended-cycle pack.

What is the effectiveness of Camrese?

Like other hormonal birth control pills, Camrese can be up to 99% effective when taken “perfectly.” That means that if 100 hypothetical women took Camrese every day for a year, one of them might become pregnant. Of course, taking a medication perfectly can be difficult — we’re only human. Missing the occasional pill or taking it late lowers the effectiveness to the mid-high nineties. That’s still a lot of protection.

Missed pill with Camrese

For the full instructions on what to do if you miss a pill, refer to the patient info that comes with your birth control. Here’s a quick look at what you need to do.

If you miss one light blue-green pill, take it as soon as you remember — even if that means taking two pills in one day.

If you miss two light blue-green pills in a row, take two pills on the day you remember and two pills the next day. Your protection has been compromised, so use condoms for the next week.

If you miss three or more light blue-green pills in a row, don’t take the missed pills. Just take one pill every day until you’ve finished the pack. Your protection has been compromised, so use condoms for the next week.

If you miss any of the seven yellow estrogen-only pills, don’t take the missed pill(s). Just take one pill every day until you’ve finished the pack.

If you’re ever not sure what to do or worried about your protection levels, use condoms when you have sex and keep taking Camrese until you’re able to speak with the doctor.

Camrese: FAQ

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Camrese vs Camrese Lo: What’s the difference?

Answer:
Camrese Lo is, well, a lower-dose version of Camrese. The seven yellow estrogen-only pills are the same in both packs, but the first 84 pills have a slightly different amount of levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol.

If you’re sensitive to hormones but want to take an extended-cycle birth control, talk to the doctor about Camrese Lo during your consultation. It may be a good option for you.

Camrese Lo vs Lo Loestrin: Are they the same?

Answer:
Lo Loestrin contains the lowest daily dose of estrogen possible — .01mg — in every active pill. Camrese Lo has this amount in the estrogen-only pills, but the first 84 pills in your Camrese pack have a higher dose of estrogen alongside the progestin.

Put simply, Lo Loestrin is unlike anything else on the market. If you really want a low dose of estrogen (but not a progestin-only birth control), it’s the way to go. Because it’s a brand-name medication, though, it can be quite expensive. Camrese Lo is a good alternative to try.

What is the dosage of Camrese?

Answer:
Camrese is available in two strengths, regular Camrese and Camrese Lo. We offer both of these.

Because Camrese is a biphasic pill, you get one dose of hormones (levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol) for the first 84 pills and then a different dose (just the ethinyl estradiol) for the last 7.

If you’re taking regular Camrese, your first 84 pills have .15mg levonorgestrel and .03mg ethinyl estradiol. The last 7 pills have .01mg ethinyl estradiol.

Camrese Lo has .1mg levonorgestrel and .02mg ethinyl estradiol in the first 84 pills, and .01mg ethinyl estradiol in the last 7.

Can you take Camrese for endometriosis?

Answer:
Camrese is an extended-cycle birth control, so you’ll get your period every three months instead of every month. This makes it a good option for women with endometriosis or other conditions with painful periods.

If you have endometriosis and are interested in Camrese or other birth control options that can help you manage symptoms, let the licensed doctor know during your consultation.

Will I have no period with Camrese?

Answer:
You won’t have a period every month with Camrese or other extended-cycle birth control. Instead, you’ll have it every three months, during the week you’re taking the yellow estrogen-only pills. It’s likely that this period will be shorter and lighter than what you’d normally experience off hormonal birth control.

Is Camrese generic?

Answer:
Yes. Camrese is the generic version of Seasonique. It’s made by Teva.

There are other extended-cycle birth control pills with the same formulation as Camrese and Seasonique. They include Amethia, Daysee, Ashlyna and Jaminess.

Generics are all equally effective but will likely look different and have different prices — and while the active ingredients (hormones) are the same, they may have other inactive ingredients.

Why should I buy Camrese with Treated?

Answer:
We want to make it simple for you to be protected — and stay protected. Take one of our consultations and a licensed doctor will help you choose a birth control that works for you. We offer many types of hormonal birth control, from combined pills like Camrese and Camrese Lo to the patch and ring. And our treatment plan means refills are shipped to you on a schedule you set — putting the “control” back in birth control.
