I have a prescription to take norethisterone while I am

Patient

Q: I have a prescription to take norethisterone while I am on holidays from 26 June to 16 July as my period is due 4th July. i was going to use it to delay my period from 4th to 16 th of July. I was wondering if I could use norethisterone to delay my next period (4th June) until the 18th of June instead of taking it while I am on holidays in July as I am afraid I will forget to take it 3 time a day as it was prescribed while I am away. If I do this how likely is it that my next period will after the 17 th of July? My cycle is usually 28days and lasts for 5 days.

Thanks

Doctor
