Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the prolonged periods and irregular periods without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Duphaston is prescribed at times to help women regulate their periods. If worried, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance, or consider taking second opinion from another gynecologist. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
