Duphaston contains Dydrogesterone.

Product Overview

Duphaston is a medication containing the active ingredient Dydrogesterone. It is a synthetic hormone similar to the naturally occurring hormone progesterone. It is commonly prescribed to treat various gynecological conditions, including irregular menstrual cycles, endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and infertility due to luteal phase deficiency. Unlike other progestogens, it has minimal androgenic and estrogenic effects, making it suitable for women who are sensitive to these hormones.


Duphaston is used to regulate menstrual cycles and treat conditions such as irregular periods, heavy menstrual bleeding, and painful menstruation. It is also prescribed for the management of endometriosis, a condition characterized by the growth of uterine tissue outside the uterus, leading to pelvic pain and infertility. Additionally, it is indicated for women undergoing assisted reproductive technologies (ART) to support early pregnancy.

How to Use

Take Duphaston orally with or without food as directed by your doctor. The dosage and duration of treatment will depend on your medical condition and response to therapy. Follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider carefully. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.

How it Works

Dydrogesterone, the active ingredient in Duphaston, acts on the lining of the uterus (endometrium) to support normal menstrual cycles and pregnancy. It helps maintain the endometrium by promoting its growth and preventing its breakdown, which is essential for embryo implantation and early pregnancy. It also has antiestrogenic properties, reducing the stimulatory effects of estrogen on the endometrium and minimizing the risk of abnormal uterine bleeding.

Dosage and Administration

The usual dosage of Duphaston varies depending on the condition being treated. For irregular menstrual cycles, a typical starting dose is 5 to 10 mg once daily from days 11 to 25 of the menstrual cycle. For endometriosis, the recommended dose is usually 10 mg twice daily from days 5 to 25 of the cycle. Your doctor will determine the appropriate dosage and duration of treatment based on your individual needs.
