Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Duphaston is basically hormonal progesterone which is useful for conception and maintaining pregnancy.

Delay in periods in your case can be due to pregnancy since you are trying to conceive. You should do a urine for pregnancy test (ideally after 1 week of your missed periods date) or get your serum HCG levels checked.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
