Welcome to ehealthforum,
The medication B-Long F is known to increase the luteal phase delaying your periods (if you are not pregnant), or supporting pregnancy (if you are pregnant). If you have had early periods, (and if bleeding is mild/lighter), then it could indicate possibility of implantation bleeding. Avoid repeating the Duphaston dosage without evaluation done by your treating doctor/gynecologist. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
