How long until I bleed after stopping norethisterone?

I've been on norethisterone for 9 months now and had 2 breaks whilst on it. I bled within 3-4 days of stopping it before but now it's been 7 days. I'm not on any other medication at the moment and am getting slightly worried about being pregnant! Is it possible that I am? We forgot I'd stopped taking it the day after I stopped and didn't use contraception but I wouldn't have thought I'd have ovulated that quick!! I conceived very quickly with both my children but surely not this quick after taking such a high dose progesterone?? I'm going out tonight and am worried about drinking but it's too late to get a test now. Has anyone else taken ages to start bleeding after stopping norethisterone? x
