Thank you for your query.
Duphaston contains progesterone.
It is given for various indications.
When it is given for delayed periods, it is taken for 5 days as you have taken.
YOu need to investigate the cause of irregular periods.
You might be having polycystic ovaries, thyroid dysfunction, high prolactin levels, endometrial hyperplasis etc.
You should not take Duphaston by yourself, but on prescription and guidance by a Gynecologist.
Please consult one for proper diagnosis and treatment.
From 15th day onwards, it is given for indications like endometrial hyperplasia , polycystic ovaries etc.
Take care.
