Camrese Dosage

When taking Camrese to prevent pregnancy, the standard dosage is one tablet taken once a day, at the same time every day. This extended-cycle birth control pill comes in a pack that lasts for 91 days. It is important to know exactly what to do if you miss any of these pills, as missing doses increases your risk of pregnancy.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Camrese

There is only one standard dose of Camrese™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

Using Camrese for Birth Control

When you take Camrese for the first time, start it on the first Sunday after your period starts. If your period happens to start on a Sunday, start the pack on the first day of your period. For the first seven days after starting Camrese, a backup method of contraception, such as condoms, is necessary. From then on, take one tablet every day.
 
Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 91 days (13 weeks) in three trays. Start at the front tray and continue through the pack. After you finish one tray, immediately start a new one.
 
The first 84 tablets contain both levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol. The last seven tablets contain a low dosage of ethinyl estradiol, but no levonorgestrel. With these last seven tablets, your body gets a break from the levonorgestrel, allowing you to have a period. You may experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods. This is not your period; keep taking Camrese as usual.
