Brief Answer: YES, YOU CAN TAKE MICRONOR 3 DAYS AGO. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Yes, You can take MICRONOR (Norethisterone) tab 3 days before your next period date to postpone or delay your period. It is usually taken twice daily and should be continued as long as you want to delay (max 2 weeks). You will get a withdrawal bleeding or similar to period within 5 to 7 days of stopping the medicine. Hope, it helps for your information.
