Brief Answer:
Duphastone used for regulating periods

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, thanks for trusting me to answer your queries.Duphastone is dydrogesterone which is a progesterone hormonal preparation. It is given to regulate the periods, by having effects on the endometrium, and converting it from proliferative to secretory type.
The main side effects of this tablet are nausea, bloating, breast pain, dizziness, weight gain, rarely skin rash and itching.
Hope you found the answer helpful. Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards
Dr Deepti Verma
