Duphaston Description

Duphaston is an oral medication that contains a synthetic form of a hormone called progesterone. For women that are having problems with fertility, miscarriages or pre-term births, endometriosis, or other menstrual disorders, Duphaston may be prescribed. There are several reasons that some women have low levels of progesterone, including chronic stress, high blood glucose, taking certain drugs, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

How Can Duphaston Help You?

One of the most important roles of progesterone in a woman’s body is to cause the endometrium (uterine lining) to emit special proteins during the latter part of your menstrual cycle to make it ready for an implanted fertilized egg. If fertilization does not occur, the egg simply passes out of your body and your estrogen and progesterone levels drop. Because there is no reason for endometrium without the fertilized egg, it sheds and passes from your body and this is when menstruation occurs. Should a successful implantation take place, hormone levels remain high to stop further ovulation during your pregnancy. Progesterone is also important for the growth of milk producing glands that enable you to breast feed.

Conditions Treated by Duphaston

Irregular periods may be one of the reasons that it is difficult for you to become pregnant. Duphaston can help by regulate the development of your uterine lining. If or when you successfully become pregnant, Duphaston can benefit you by helping to keep your endometrium healthy in order to sustain your unborn baby. This can be an essential step for decreasing the likelihood of a miscarriage. Hormonal fluctuations are believed to be why some women experience premenstrual syndrome, better known as PMS. By adjusting your hormone levels with Duphaston, your loved ones will be able to come out of hiding during your period and you will be less stressed out by mood swings.

Before taking Duphaston

There are no known health risks to you or your unborn or nursing baby while taking Duphaston, but you should see your doctor right away to confirm this if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide information regarding any over the counter or Rx medications you are taking, including herbal preparations and vitamin supplements. This allows your doctor to make an informed decision whether adding Duphaston will cause any negative interactions.

Duphaston Precautions

You may find that shortly after taking Duphaston you experience some dizziness. To avoid possible injuries, do not take part in any activities that could be unsafe until you know how Duphaston will affect you. Taking certain non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs while on Duphaston may increase your risk of a stroke or heart attack.
