It is less likely the bleeding is due to Duphaston. Pregnancy itself may cause mild bleeding and spotting as the baby inserts in the womb and the placenta starts to develop so it is common in the first tremester to have some bleeding.

1 in 5 pregnant women get bleeding in the first tremester and half of these pregnancies go on without a problem. On the other hand if the bleeding is increasing and you get abdominal pain then you will need to see the doctor and rule out other important causes of bleeding like ectopic pregnancy and abortion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
