Norethisterone to stop period

Hi right this weekend I went away. Back today. Started my period very late into the night Wednesday around 10pm.
Couldn't get an early appointment with the nurse till the Friday and yes I had been trying all week. So by the time she gave me the prescription I had been bleeding a usual moderate flow. For two days. Took the 3 tabs on Friday and bleeding stopped by the end of that day. 2 tabs on Saturday and then knew that I no longer needed to take any as I was due to come home.

No I didn't tell the nurse I was already bleeding as I didn't want her to refuse to give me it. I usually have two days of moderate flow then flood for 3 then straight to light and stop. And no way could I cope with a flood while being on the road.
So it's been 24 hours since no tabs. I am now getting period pain again. Will the bleeding start again or nothing till next time? Has anyone taken this tab in the beginning days of a period??

Yes! It takes about 2 days for bleeding to stop once I start taking them.
