The was absolute hell on earth for me. I decided after I started bleeding irregularly the second month it was normal and would just decrease over time, but no I have my period constantly and it's been five months.

Two weeks after taking Camrese, I have been on my period ever since! The bleeding never stops. Some days it extremely light and other days its medium and heavy. I took this medication thinking I was going to have LESS periods but in fact, it is the opposite. I have read other reviews online and many people are in my same position. What gives?
