Brief Answer:
The bleeding will stop after 3 days.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.
Since the spotting has already started taking the tablet Primolut N will stop the bleeding after 2-3 days as it takes three days to show its effect on the uterus. After you will stop having the tablet you will again have a withdrawal bleeding. This can disturb your bleeding pattern. It is best to let the bleeding continue and the period will stop on its own by 5th Feb.
I hope this answers your query.

Take care,
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
