Using Norethisterone and Microgynon to treat Implanon bleeding

Patient : I was prescribed Norethisterone to help regularize my periods after a year of using Implanon and months of painful heavy bleeding. I completed a 10 day course 5 days ago, and have had extremely heavy bleeding for the past 2 days. Is this normal, and how long is it likely to last? I was also given a 3 month prescription of Microgynon to take if the Norethisterone didn't work. Should I begin taking this now or do I need to wait, and if the latter, how long for? Thanks for your help.
Doctor :   This is normal as you are having the normal withdrawal bleed. However if it continues or becomes heavier you need to tak e the microgynon and consult your gynecologist in person for further discussion of management.All the best.
