Thank you for your query.
Norethisterone intake, specially around the first trimester, is known to cause abnormalities.
It causes masculinization ( virilization ) of a female fetus.
It is associated with various other anomalies, but no definite studies are there.
You should consult your gynecologist and have a consultation with a Fetal Medicine specialist / Genetic counsellor to know the exact risks and various tests that can be done to diagnose it.
Take care.
