Can I take a break in taking Norethisterone?

Hi I am already taking Norethisterone for PMS in a 10 day on and 18 days off cycle but I have a special holiday coming up which is going to coincide with having my period. I am just finishing my period ie day 11 of the 18 days off N. Can I just delay starting N for a week which takes me to a few days before I leave and then continue to take it during the holiday (14 days in total)?

Thanks for query,
Your Norethisteone for PMS is settle with cycle.If you just postpone it to take for a week to facilitate your vacation you will disturb all your cycle.
As the surge of hormones that causes your PMS is released in cyclical fashion & thats why you are advised to take it from day 10 to day 18.
It is not advisable to disturb it.
