History of irregular heavy periods. Scan shows large ovary. On duphaston. Started spotting. Is it due to missed pills?

i have a history of irregular periods. i consulted a gynae because of heavy bleeding . the blood reports are normal but the scan shows that my right ovary is large. she asked me to reduce weight. i have been prescribed duphaston for 15 days. 3 times daily for three days and then 2 times daily for the next 12 days. i missed intake once but continued duphaston later. it has been 2 to 3 days now and suddenly spotting is there. is it due to missed intake of the pill? should i discontinue the pill?

Thanks for writing to us with your health concern,
Yes, spotting could be due to the missed pill.
You should continue taking the pill as advised, the spotting would stop.
Take care.
