Irregular periods, on duphaston pills. missed a pill. Solution?

I have been taking duphaston pills regularly past 4 days, and was supposed to take it for a duration of ten days in all. However, today I missed taking it, and remembered ten hours after I usually take it.. What should I do now? Should I take the pill now that ten hours have gone by? also what do I do about the next days pill? Should I take tomorrow s or stop this ten day course. The purpose is to regularize my periods.

I am Dr Madhuri a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynecologist and will be helping you with your queries.

Do not worry so much. This is not a birth control pill that needs to be taken on the same time. So delaying a dose by a few hours will not matter. Take the pill now. You may change the timing of the next dose according to this does. For example if you were taking it every 12 hours, take the next dose 12 hours form the timing of this one and so on.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
