Women who need a progestin-only form of birth control may consider Camila® (norethindrone). Sometimes called a "mini-pill," this drug does not contain estrogen, which makes it an ideal choice for women who are breastfeeding or need to avoid estrogen for other reasons.
However, this product is not right for every woman. Prior to taking Camila, inform your healthcare provider if you experience severe headaches
, such as migraines
, or if you have liver disease, a history of cancer, or any other medical conditions. In addition, tell your healthcare provider about all other medications you are taking, including nonprescription products and supplements.
