Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

Duphaston is a progesterone , which prevents the ovulation and prevents conception..
yes, by taking this tablet, chances of getting pregnant is less... best contraceptive mifeprestone 400mcg , taken within 72 hrs of unprotected sex... a single dose is enough... hope i have answered your question...

Take care...
