duoluton-l are combined oral contraceptive pills,
they can cause side effects like weight changes, skin lesions etc, so that may be the reason for your symptoms,
usually after stopping the pills these effects will subside and it may not affect the fertility in future,
these tablets will contain low levels of hormones compared with natural menstrual cycle and lead to withdrawal bleeding causing less blood loss during menstruation.
take care.

Duoluton -L (levonorgestrel + ethinylestradiol) is usually used as a contraception, which may also used to control heavy menses bleeding.
These tablets are hormones, which has its own side effects, these causes metabolic and endocrine disturbances.
This may be a reason for your symptoms but there is no solid evidence for this.
If you believe your complaints started only after taking this drugs, you may ask your Gync for a change in treatment.
Norethisterone may be a good alternative,
