thanks for choosing healthcaremagic.Any hormonal medication needs to be taken only in prescribed dose.Norethisterone is used primarily for timing menstruation and other problems related to menstrual cycle.any thing in excess is not good.So stop the drug and visit your doctor for choice of oral contraceptive suitable to you.I hope you had withdraw bleeding in between.

In general Norethisterone drug is used to treat

This is hormonal for your benefit one of this of heavy bleeding for you
