Hello Taheraaueo,
Duphaston is absolutely safe for your baby and you. In fact it protects your pregnancy from miscarriage. So you can continue using it till 20 weeks. It does not cause weight gain. Most common reason for weight gain during pregnancy is eating more fatty foods and not the drugs. Besides body is programmed to gain weight so that the accumulated fat can be used for lactation. So even if you gain weight you will loose it within 6 months to 1 year of breastfeeding.
