Brief Answer:
Withdrawal bleeding occurs within 7-10 days of stopping the drug

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Sandoz is norethisterone and one is expected to get the withdrawal periods within 7-10 days of stopping it.
If you have still not got your periods, then I will suggest you to get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.
If negative, then you can wait for another one week for the periods to come.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards
