Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Provera and duphaston both are progesterone with similar drug profile and side effects. You can take 10 mg twice daily from day 11 to 25 of the cycle. Treatment should be maintained for at least 3-6 consecutive cycles. It ll be ideal if you consult your gynecologist and then start treatment. Serious side effects are not expected. Breakthrough bleeding may occur in a few patients. Nausea, breast tenderness, headache, bloated feeling, transient dizziness and skin reactions may occur occasionally. Take care
