Taken norethisterone after periods has started, heavy bleeding, pain. Will this pill helps to reduce or stop period?

Hi I was due to take Norethisterone in a couple of days time (3 days before period). I am going on holiday tomorrow but have got my period today (early by a week) and so have taken first tablet . I suffer badly with pain as well as bleeding heavily and fainting . Will the pills work if I started them today and at least reduce my period whilst I am away because I started taking them late?

NORETHISTERONE postpones period if it is started at least three days before the periods are due.
It is not going to work if you take it on the day of period or if tne periods start.
