I am in a remote area and cannot get to a pharmacy or doctors for a while , will skipping a micronor (norethindrone) pill and having a period confirm not pregnant?

In brief: Prog withdrawal

I'm assuming you've been taking micronor (norethindrone) for some time.
Skipping 1 day may not give you a period, but stopping it all together should give you a withdrawal bleed within 2-7 days if you're not pregnant. You'l want to restart it after your period comes and use a back-up birth control method for a while to try to prevent conception going forward.
