Has anyone taken norethisterone before?


Hello, new to this and just posted something but unsure if I have done so correctly 🤷‍♀️.. just wondering if anyone had this before norethisterone? It says a period should come 2-3days after you stop but I've had no sign of it.. can it take longer for women with pcos? Any comments be greatly appreciated 😊

I’ve taken it loads to stop or induce periods. I do usually get a period about 3 days after but it has taken longer. I think last time it took almost a week. When did you finish your course?

Yeah this is to induce one, I was hoping it would've come around now! Maybe I'm over worrying.. This is my fourth day, I stopped taking it Wednesday?

Yeah it’s so frustrating waiting for one! Hopefully it will start soon, I’d give it a couple of days and if nothing contact your dr.

Okay thank you, I was just unsure. Someone did say it can take some women up to 10 days, but I read most places 3-4 days so thank you for your advice it's good to hear from someone who's taken it too.

I think i came on my period 5 days after stopping it .. like you i was beginning to panic! I think everyone’s just different. It’ll come tomorrow i bet ☺️

Thank you, it's good being on here and getting other peoples views and opinions! Fingers crossed then, feel it's due to arrive ha

Hi, mine took a week to come after the last pill

Ah thank you, I am just worrying but I'll just have to give it time I suppose 😊 it's good to know it really varies with everyone!

It was usually 5 days for me. But it can be a week
