Thanks for your query,
Duphastan is a progesterone. Progesterone is given for luteal phase support for progesterone deficiency in the second half of the cycle.It does not increases the chance of pregnancy, but it helps in sustaining the pregnancy after it occurs in patients with luteal phase defect or in patients with unexplained infertility. So it may be helpful in some cases .
Periods will start after stopping duphastan. Dont be disheartened, even in a absolutely normal couple, chances of pregnancy per cycle is only 25%.
Best of luck..

Welcome to HCM.
If you are planning for baby,then have to intercourse around ovulation time to get high chances of pregnancy with regular period.
Folic acid and Duphaston tab are basically given to regularize period.Period starts within 7 days after stop taking those tabs.
Upt is negative and period is still not come. So have to rule out underlying pathology with USG lower abdomen,hormone profile etc and consult with your gynecologist afterthat.
Take healthy diet,avoid stress and proper sleep.
Be well.
