hi jenavi,
duphaston is progesterone which helps in implantation when fertilization occurs,
and it will also help in maintenance of pregnancy and in prevention of miscarriages,
so you start taking that and if you miss your periods on expected date check for pregnancy,
you can also take folic acid tablets and multivitamin tablets from now onwards which will be beneficial to your baby.
take care.
