Hi,

Duphastone contains dydrogesterone which is used to treat female infertility, various menstrual problems including painful or irregular periods, premenstrual symdrome (PMS) and endometriosis. It helps to restart periods that have stopped before the menopause and to prevent unusually heavy period. Side effects of Duphastone are nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness and enlargement, headache, stomach pain, menstrual problems, dry mouth, drowsiness, dizziness, diarrhoea, depression, mood swings, muscle pain, back pain, allergic reactions etc. Most side effects don't require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if symptoms persist or if you are worried about these symptoms.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
