my cycle has been regular since my 2nd pregnancy. i don't have kids yet.. i miscarried twice. one at 16weeks and one at 22weeks. it's been over a year now since my last miscarriage. my period has delayed from jan29, 2011 LMP. i've consulted my gyne and was put on duphaston to induce bleeding or confirm pregnancy if i don't get after taking medication... i taken duphaston Apr10-Apr14 twice a day. now i'm just waiting for my period to arrive. my gyne said if it doesn't come, i maybe pregnant it tried PT last month but it was negative. i have PCOS by the way. my 2nd pregnancy i have conceive naturally. was there other reason not to get my period in 5-7 days after taking duphaston besides pregnancy?...
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If periods do not occur after taking Duphaston, then the most likely cause is considered to be pregnancy. If you are pregnant be in precaution. Go ahead with testing for serial serum HCG level estimation. A rise in levels would confirm that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If the levels are found to be lower, then you will need to be put on external supplements to prevent miscarriage.
If you are not found to be pregnant, consider getting treated for PCOS and rule out other causes that could be responsible for miscarriage. A karyotyping test done on both you and your partner would help to rule out possibilities of chromosomal anomalies. Your partnerâs semen analysis will help to know if he has good quality and quantity of sperms produced. Wait for 5-7 days after finishing the Duphaston course to see if you have the induced/withdrawal bleeding or not.
Thanks much for your immediate response doc..
