It is probably due to hormonal imbalance. Take the birth control pills you were taking earlier for this cycle and then restart the Regesterone only from D3 or 4 of the withdrawal bleed.
Switch over to tab dienogest 2 mg once a day if regesterone is not working. It will help you.
Don’t worry with endometriosis pain is common and spotting is due to hormonal issue ,it will be der till your body adjust for those tablets.
Don't worry about the spotting as it is possible to have some breakthrough bleeding while on norethisterone. Pain could be due to underlying pathology of endometriosis. I would suggest an alternate progesterone in higher dose for endometriosis but need to review your reports first. For pain you could take tab meftal spas 1 tab three times a day for 2-3 days. Also get a urine routine examination done. Consider a private consultation.
