Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Now that your period has started, it is of no use to take duphaston now. Taking of these tablets now will not stop your period instantly but it will take at least 2-3 days to stop them. By then your periods will be over otherwise also. Hormone tablets will rather disturb your normal cycle.
