Prolonged, heavy periods. Taking norethisterone tablets, stopped, bleeding reoccurred. Normal?

I ve used norethisterone 5 mg tablets for 10 days (3 tablets per day). This was prescribed by my GP as a remedy of heavy bleeding for around 7-8 days and ongoing. Now after stopping the above mentioned tablet, I ve started bleeding once again.[after 2 days of stopping medicine]. Is it normal? If not could you please advice if we need to see the GP again?

Thanks for the query.

Menorrhagia due to hormonal imbalance can recur after stopping the pills. So better option is consulting your doctor and getting evaluated for the cause of your problem. And if the cause is only hormonal imbalance without any anatomical abnormality.
Then with your doctor's advice you can go for cyclical hormonal pills to decrease the bleeding and to regularize the cycle.
Take care.
