Welcome to this forum.
Duphaston is not an ideal medicine for irregular periods and if so used, dosage for it is twice a day. However, you need to be evaluated for the irregular cycle and a symptomatic treatment is not enough for the treatment. Now you can do one thing. Just start taking twice a day dosage for next one week. Stop it. Let the period come. Then you can take few cycles of common birth control pills for couple of months(I know the IUD is there). Meanwhile go to your doctor for an evaluation.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
