I am on Duphaston from day 16-23 of my cycle. I got my period on 25 feb, ovulated on 6/7 march and now spotting 10&11 march - what does this mean?

I am on Duphaston from day 16-23 of my cycle. I got my period on 25 feb, ovulated on 6/7 march and now spotting 10&11 march - what does this mean?

Hard to pinpoint: Don't know why you are on a progestin 16-23 or if you're trying for a pregnancy. Ovulation kits turn positive 2 days before ovulation (physical ovulation), so you probably ovulated on 3/9 or so. Estradiol drops significantly after ovulation on post ov day 1 and 2. Some people will have some bleeding with that drop in hormone. Headaches are also common at this time for some. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm taking marvelon for preventing pregnancy and my obstetrician prescribed Duphaston for 7 days. I forgot to ask her if I can take both at the same time. Can i?

Hormones: Marvelon is a combined estrogen and Progesterone pill used to protect women from getting pregnant. Duphaston is a Progesterone only pill. If you are trying to prevent pregnancy, marvelon alone would have been ok. Not sure why Duphaston was prescribed for 7 days only. I would call your doc and ask him what the reason is for that. ...Read more

Had us doc saw sac lower near my cervix any possibilities of pregnancy? Put me on Duphaston and folic acid but she did not elaborate further

Cervical pregnancy: If you are pregnant and your doctor saw a sac near or in your cervix. It can become a problem because the cervix isn't the normal place for the pregnancy to implant and won't stretch the way the uterus will, it can cause a lot of problems with significant bleeding. If' the pregnancy is inside the uterus, it may not be a problem as it grows inside the uterus. ...Read more

If you take it and then stop it may then start your period going again. A gynecological endocrinologist would be the type of doc who could guide you through the rough waters here. ...Read more
