Have bleeding. Have irregular periods always. Took duphaston medicine. Is this normal?

Hello Doctor, My wife has been getting irregular periods. We have been married for 11 months and after our honeymoon her periods became relatively regular until the last 2 periods. The doctor advised her to take duphaston and after taking it for 5 days now she noticed small amounts of bleeding. Is this normal?
Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the query.
You didn't mention why she is taking duphaston.
If it is used for delayed menstruation, after using it for 5 days, it will induce withdrawal bleeding.
If the duphaston is prescribed in 20 to 25 days course etc. to regulate the periods, then the bleeding she had could be breakthrough bleeding.
So you once consult your doctor discuss these possibilities and follow her advice.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
