Taking norethisterone for irregular periods. Can I get pregnant when taking this medicine?

Hello, I need your advise... I have been taking Norethisterone for my irregular periods for two weeks now. I would like to know if one can get pregnant even when taking the norethisterone? I discontinued taking the drug two days ago because I was concerned about the possibility being pregnant while on the drug. Do I have reasons to worry and what would be the effect of discontinuing without the doctors orders?

Hi, welcome to HCM,
Firstly norethisterone is a hormonal analogue. It is used also as a contrceptive pills, so, it is unnatural to get pregnant.
Now, if you discontinue the drug then it will causes loss of normal menstrual cycle which is going to be restored.
So, do not stop the drug without cinsulting your treating doctor.
