Wanted to postpone periods. Took norethisterone medication, periods still came, stopped after bleeding for one day. Should I continue medication?

Hi, I took norEthisterone while on my first day of period. The next day the bleeding became very little and even stopped entirely. Should I continue taking the table (would my period still come if i do?) or just stop and let the period flow as per normal? I was planning to go for a holiday tomorrow but my period came on the day I intended to start medication (3 days prior).

Thanks for query,
As you have already taken norethisterone on 1st day of your period if you stop to taking it now you may gets withdrawal bleed again.
so continue to take it until your holiday completed.then after stop the pill & then after 4-5 days you get withdrawal bleed.
