Duphastan can use in irregular cycle treatment.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing to us.

Your answers are as follows-

1) No as such there is no subject area which shows that duphaston interfere with fertility rather it is useful where the leuteal phase defect (progesterone deficiency) cause infertility.

2) It is useful in regularizing menstrual cycle.
It can be used 10 mg bid from 11 th day to 25 th day of Cycle.

3) You can use it for 3-6 cycle.

So in your case you can use duphaston for regularization of your cycle after consulting your treating physician.

Hope I have answered your query if you have further questions I will be happy to assist you.

Good luck.

Brief Answer:
No, there is no problem.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It will be nice hearing from you again.

You should take duphastan from the day 16 th to day 25th.

If you conceive in between then you can stop duphastan on 25 th day as corpous leuteum start screating progesterone hormone.

Duphastan level does not fall immediately after stopping it.
Thus it will also maintain hormonal levels.

Hope it is helpful.

Please feel free to discuss and add more.
Good luck.

Brief Answer:
Your cycle are still unpredictable.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Nice to hear from you all again.

With your description it is clear that your cycle is still unpredictable.

It is a withdrawal bleeding induce by duphaston.

In leuteal phase defect usually progesterone (duphaston) used for last 10days (16 th-25th day) not for 5 days.

Hormonal effect can vary according to its dose and in which time period of the cycle it is using.

In my opinion, in your scenario first you should take medicine to regulate your cycle because during irregular cycle ovulation is not predictable.

When you are trying to conceive your most fertile days are 2-3days before and 1-2 after ovulation and in a 28 day cycle ovulation usually takes place 14 days before the next expected period.

In 28-35 day cycle is most fertile days are from 8th day- 19 th of the cycle when 1st day counted from 1st day of period bleeding.

So you can attempt in those above mentioned days for successful pregnancy.

Hope this information is helpful and informative too.

Please feel free to ask more questions.

Good luck.

Dr. Richa
