Thanks for writing to HCM.

You can safely take these tablets which contain Norethisetrone, a hormone which changes the menstrual cycle temporarily as long as you take it. Withdrawal bleeding usually occurs about 3-6 days after stopping it. You can start taking it about 10 days before your period is due till as long as needed. Donot exceed for more than 15 days.

Hope this helps.
