Brief Answer:
Norethisterone tablets of 5 mg

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on XXXXXXX

I will suggest you to take norethisterone tablets of 5mg thrice daily. It should be started 3 days before your expected date(6th in your case).

It should be taken till you don't want to bleed. Your period will come after 2-5 days of stopping the tablets.

The pill can be taken with food three times daily. It should not be taken empty stomach. It can cause some nausea and vomiting. In that case, you can take some antiemetic like metoclopramide or ondansetron tablets.

Good Luck
Hope this information is helpful and informative.
