Period started. Can I take Norethisterone to stop it?

Can I take Norethisterone to stop a period that has already started, currently on day 5. I need to stop it for the weekend. I have a ten day supply which I didn't use from a few months ago. I have read the leaflet and it suggests that if I take one three times a day, the bleeding will stop in two to three days. I am fifty years of age, five feet six and about eleven stone. No PMH of note.

Thank you

Hi thanks for the query.

You can stop your bleeding with the help of norethisterone tablets. But it will not stop immediately and will take 2-3 days to do its work.But remember that you can again have bleeding once you will stop taking these tablets.So, plan according

Hope this information is helpful and informative to you.
