Discussion follows

Detailed Answer:
Welcome and thanks for your query.
The deficiency can be overcome by healthy lifestyle. Eat healthy wholesome food consisting of natural organic fruits and vegetables, exercise minimum of 30 minutes a day and practice stress relieving measures like yoga and meditation and your body will regain its abilities of absorption and metabolism.
If you have symptoms of flushing, sweating, emotional upsets etc, it may be due to progesterone deficiency and oral progesterone would be helpful . You could also discuss the pros and cons of low dose estrogen supplement with your doctor if you are symptomatic.

I stopped using duphaston.Today I went to doc and was advised to take mcbm-69 and diane35. Am I getting treated in the right way.
