Is Duphaston tablet safe during pregnacy


I am 28 years and I am planning for a 2nd pregnancy. My periods have been delayed by 49 days already. I consulted a Gynec and she suggested me to take Duphaston tablet. But I am not sure if it is safe. Does it have any side effects. Can I get pregnant by taking that tablet. I have taken a HPT but the result was negative. In case if I am pregnant already, will the tablet affect the fetus? Also, I had gestational diabetics during my 1st pregnancy. So the gynec gave me Glycomet tablet. Is it safe to take it now. I am not sure if I am pregnant.

Thank you

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Your doctor has probably prescribed duphaston to bring periods, since you are already 49 days overdue. If you strongly suspect pregnancy, then you should take blood test for HCG estimation. If this is negative, then take duphaston to start periods.

Yes, if you have diabetes during pregnancy, your doctor may prescribe metformin to bring it under control. However, the best rule is not to take any medicine unless really indicated. Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.
