Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

Duphaston is usually given for a number menstrual disorders and helps to regulate the healthy growth and normal shedding of the womb lining. As such it is not a contraceptive. It is a synthetic female sex hormone that resembles the naturally occurring sex hormone.
So continue the withdrawal method, if you dont want to get pregnant, you can also try condoms.

I hope this answered your question.
