Patient :The pill I'm currently on is Micronor which is norethisterone based, and last week my period was due on and so my doctor prescribed me norethisterone to delay my period so I took this along with my current pill and stopped this Monday. And me and my boyfriend were safe during sex, using condoms and I was taking my pill within in the 3 hour time slot for it.
I know that after taking noresthisterone my period should come on 2-3 days afterwards, but as my mini pill is also norethisterone based will it come on or will I miss it and it will come on at its regular date at the end of the month so I will miss it?
Thanks for the query.
If you are on norethisterone already there was no need to use it for delaying cycles as well. It looks like you have got an additional dose of the hormone. This can surely alter the regularity of your cycle. It can either delay or fasten the cycle date or even make you miss a cycle due to the hormonal imbalance that is created.
Withdrawal bleeding is generally expected in about 5 to 7 days after stopping the hormonal pill. Hence you can wait for a few more days in that case. Since you have had a protected intercourse and used the pill as well on time, there is little that you need to worry about getting pregnant.
In case there is a delay in periods, please consult the doctor concerned.
Hope this helped. Regards
