Hello goggofy,

Breast enlargement that you are experiencing is a side effect of Duphaston. Once your hormone levels show normal results they are likely to get normal. The frequency of urination that you have can be due to some infection in the UTI. It can also be due to dehydration.

Get re-hydrated with re-hydrating fluids. If you have burning sensation in the urine you need some investigations to be done. Take plenty of pure, hygienic water to flush out the toxicity from your body.

Dark urine are also a consequence of liver disorders like jaundice, hepatitis A, B or C, gallbladder or kidney stones. Consult a General physician and get all the investigations done and treatment started. Have a good day, take care.

Welcome to HCM.

You are suffering from frequent urination,dark colored urine and large breast.

It may be due to side effect of Duphaston. It has several side effect like breakthrough bleeding,altered liver function,jaundice,rashes,nausea,vomiting,feeling of breast heaviness,oedema,etc.

Dark colored urine may be due to altered liver function or hemolysis of RBC cell.So,I suggest you to do a Liver Function Test assay (LFT) to rule out underlying pathology.

Check the result and consult with your doctor.Also maintain personal hygiene.

In this time,you take plenty of fluid including oral glucose.Avoid stress and take healthy diet.

Be well.
