Welcome to ehealthforum.
Duphaston is often used in treatment of secondary amenorrhea. The cause for the absent periods needs to be found to be able to start you on appropriate treatment regime to help you get pregnant. Consider discussing your pregnancy plans with your treating doctor or visit an Infertility Specialist for further management. If you are not pregnant, you can get your periods 5-7 days after stopping with it.
Take care.
