User avatar Hello,

CAMILO (Norethindrone) is the type of birth control pill that you have to take at the same time every day. If you are over 3 hours late you should use another type of birth control for the next 48 hours to ensure you won’t get pregnant.

Your baby is 6 months old now; it isn’t uncommon to start having your menstrual flow around this time, even if you are still nursing. You might just be spotting or it could be the real thing. Breastfeeding women may STILL OVULATE so you still can become pregnant as you wisely know. If you start feeling more concerned please don’t hesitate to call your doctor.
