A week late from my period. Doctor recommended norethisterone, took it for 3 days and stopped taking two days back, still haven't gotten period, why?

In brief: Takes awhile

It can take up to a week to 10 days for a withdrawal bleed to occur. Of course your doctor must have tested for pregnancy before prescribing the norethisterone.
If your period still hasn't started by next week, get back to your doctor for more testing. Hope this helps.
