Such irregular menstrual bleeding can be due to either implantation bleeding or early pregnancy with a hormonal deficiency or hormonal imbalance ( incidental by psychological or physical stress or ovarian or thyroid problem or some local cervical problems ) when norethisterone may not be indicated. You take rest for a couple of days. Take Gynae CVP capsules OTC if bleeding is excessive. If not controlled in 2-3 days. Consult a gynecologist. To take hormones without doctor's advise is not recommended.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
