Hello dear,

Sorry for the delay in my response.

Can you please give me details in which date you had norethisterone, because today is 29 th april, so there is only very short duration left to resume your period?

You had taken drug twice daily or thrice daily?

And on which date you start the drug?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Good luck.

Hello dear,

If you had 2 tablets per day since 25 th how it come 5 tablets?

I am asking if you had 6 tablets for 3 days ( means two tablets per day regularly )or not.

Brief Answer:
Take thrice daily for 2 days.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

Sorry to say but now you have disturbed your menstrual cycle by taking it irregularly and in inappropriate dosages.

Now in my opinion you can continue pill thrice daily for 2 more days means 30 th april and 1 st may and maybe you will resume your period latest by 4 th so maybe you will be free by 8th if you have 3-4 days period.

Another option is to continue the tablet for 15 days ( means if we calculate from 25 th than continue maximum till 9 th) to postponed your period.

And when you stop taking it you will resume your period within a week, so that time you will be free by your marriage Rituals.

I think postponement is now a better option.

Hope it is useful.
