Brief Answer:
You can stop Duphaston.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
If the period has already started on 27th XXXXXXX again then it is best to stop Duphaston and wait for next 4-5 days so that the period stops on its own. With the irregular periods like you are having it is best to start with a combined oral contraceptive pill like Ovral after consulting your gynecologist. You can start taking the pill from day 5 of the period i.e., from 1st or 2nd July.
Oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) suppress endometrial development, reestablish predictable bleeding patterns, decrease menstrual flow, and lower the risk of iron deficiency anemia.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Better to stop it today.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
If you stop taking Duphaston today then there can be mild bleeding after 2-3 days. In case you continue taking it and stop after 7 days then again you will have a withdrawal bleeding. It is better to stop it now and start with an oral contraceptive pill to regularize your periods now.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Brief Answer:
You can continue with Duphaston.

Detailed Answer:
If you wish to continue with your fasting during Ramdhan then there is no harm in continuing with Duphaston. Rather take it for 15 days and then stop to have a withdrawal bleeding to avoid more frequent periods. You can start with oral pills later on.
