Wants to postpone periods. Taking norethisterone medication. After stopping pills will my next period be in 28 days?

I am going on holiday in 10 days for 3 weeks and my period is due in the middle of my holiday so I am planning to take Norethisterone tablets to delay it for the last 12days of my holiday. I am then back home for 2 weeks and I will stop taking it and let my period happen but then I am going away for another 3 weeks in which my period will be due again so I plan to take Norethisterone to delay my period again. After having stopped taking it when I get home and had a period will my next period be due again 28days later? I need to know this in order to work out when to start taking it again during my next holiday. Thank you

Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
ONce you take norethisterone for the first time, you will bleed within a week after stopping the pills.
Once the period is over, you should get your next period in the routine time, if it is 28 day cycle for you, it will remain the same.
Take care.
