Hello, welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das.

Firstly, you did not mentioned your age. If it is below the age of menopause, then, you are suffering from secondary menopause.

For this, duphaston is the right drug for progesterone challenge. But, when it is not working out, then doctor has to think for other options. The most effective option is dilation and curettage. Send the biopsy material for histological examination.

So, consult with your treating doctor about this.
