Camrese Side Effects

Women who are taking Camrese may develop side effects like nausea, bloating, and headaches. Many of the reactions to this and other oral birth control pills are usually minor and easy to treat. However, contact your healthcare provider right away if you develop more serious problems, such as vision changes, sharp chest pain, or leg or foot swelling.

An Introduction to Camrese Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Camrese™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the contraceptive will have problems. In fact, most women tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Camrese. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
