Good Day
Norethethisterone is a progesterone hormone. It is given for many indications but in your case it could be because you haven;t had periods for a while. The progesterone helps to re-start your cycles and make them regular you can plan for pregnancy. After your breakthrough bleeding occurs, you can conceive within 2-3 cycles.
