Brief Answer:
Wait for few days more.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Duphaston 10mg tablet is a progestin (female hormones). It works as part of hormone replacement therapy by replacing the amount of oestrogen in the uterus. It works to bring on menstruation by replacing the natural progesterone that some women are missing.
Duphaston is not a contraceptive or abortion pills.
UPT comes positive after 7 days of missed period.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
