Blood clots period over a week - norethisterone

Patient : I was given norethisterone afew months ago as I was going away and did not want to have a period. I had a weekend away with my new boyfriend last week and I was coming on so I randomly just started taking some of these tablets again to avoid this.. I took 3 a day and then when I come home about 4 days later I stopped taking them.. I then came on my period and had horrible cramps and I am still on a week later with more blood clots than normal is this due to the norethisterone and me starting them out of the blue ?
