Are There Side Effects?

Just like any medicine, CamreseLo may cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the contraceptive will experience problems. In fact, most women tolerate it quite well.
If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Common side effects of CamreseLo include but are not limited to:
  • Headaches
  • Irregular or heavy uterine bleeding
  • Painful menstrual periods
  • Nausea
