Hi, new here! After giving birth over 3 months ago I’ve decided it’s time to go back on the pill as we’re not looking to conceive right now. Got an appointment to get it tomororw however I’ve just got my period today and me and my hubby have a weekend away planned on Friday, I know you can take northisterone to stop bleeding and I have some leftover to use however can I take this alongside the pill to protect me from pregnancy (as doctor told me protection is immediate if taken within first 5 days of cycle) and stop my period to enjoy my weekend??

I ve taken Norethisterine several times but my understanding is that it will only prevent your period from starting, it wont stop it once it's started. I might be wrong though.
