Welcome to Healthcare Magic
The pain is due to the shedding out of the thick endometrium and contraction of uterus. You need to drink plenty of fluids. Better to take rest. You can take pain killer with muscle relaxant like Diclomine drug or Buscopan drug for best relief under medical supervision for 2-3 days after a meal. It will disappear soon when period is going to stop. If the pain does not subside you need to go to the Hospital.

Thank for query,
You continue the medicine for 3-4 months and after that course you will be alright.
You can start oral contraceptive tablet which will regularize your period and give relief of pain.
Then stop taking Norgest.
ok and bye
