Taking Norethisterone while bleeding will not stop your period. This form of the contraceptive pill is designed to be taken every day throughout your menstrual cycle without a break. This means that you are meant to still be taking the pill even when you are on your period. It is a progesterone only pill so, unlike the combined pill, it does not regulate and control when your periods take place. You may find that when you are on norethisterone that you periods are quite irregular and may be infrequent, too frequent or missed completely. If you want to take a contraceptive pill that also regulates your periods then it is worth consulting your doctor and asking to be changed to a different form of birth control.

Norethisterone prevents pregnancy in three different ways. Firstly, it affects the natural mucus of the cervix. By thickening the mucus, the pill makes it more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. If this is more of a challenge then it is far less likely that a sperm will be able to reach the point where it would fertilize an egg. The pill also changes the quality of the womb lining. By making these changes, any eggs that are fertilised are unable to attach themselves and implant into the wall of the womb. Finally, norethisterone can help prevent the release of an egg from the ovaries completely. This is not something that occurs in all cases. In order for the pill to be most effective, it should be taken at the same time every day. It is suggested that if you take your pill more than three hours late, you will not be fully protected against pregnancy. Any sickness, diarrhoea or antibiotics can all have an effect on the efficiency of the pill so consider using another form of birth control if you have sex in any of these circumstances.

Yes, you can take Norethisterone while bleeding and it will stop your period.  But after taking the dose, in about 2 -3 days, you will get your period again.

There was a time where my periods were irregular and I was bleeding for 6 months straight. I went to the doctor and they put me on a birth control to not only stop the bleeding, but to regulate me as well. I thought it was kind of weird, but it did help out.

If I only take two norethisterone tablets a day rather then three will that still stop my period.

After you take norethisterone and you start your period is it only suppose to last 3 days?

You can take it, but it won't stop the bleeding completely, it will be very light. Another bad thing is that you will be on your period after, and may also have light bleeds after you've had your period for a while, this is because you have tampered with your period as you are meant to take it a few days before. So I would advise not too. Its not really worth it!

I'm in the same situation. I just took a Norethisterone tablet and hopefully it'll stop because I've got a sleepover later and it'll ruin it for me D:
