Norethindrone acetate

Patient: Hello, I’ve been taking norethindrone acetate >10 years continuously for severe endometriosis pain. I was taking 20mg for most of that time, but decreased to 10mg over the past year or more. I have now weaned myself to 5mg 1/2 tab (so 2.5mg) in preparation for hopefully getting pregnant. My questions are how long after completely stopping the medication is it possible to get pregnant and how long after completely stopping the medication should I expect a period?
