What is Dydrogesterone (Duphaston)
Generic Duphaston is an orally active progestogen which acts directly on the uterus, producing a complete secretory endometrium in an estrogen-primed uterus. At therapeutic levels, Generic Duphaston has no contraceptive effect as it does not inhibit or interfere with ovulation or the corpus luteum. Furthermore, Generic Duphaston is non-androgenic, non-estrogenic, non-corticoid, non-anabolic and is not excreted as pregnanediol.
How Duphaston Tablet works?

Duphaston medicine benefits
Duphaston tablets 10mg are used to treat several conditions that are the result of a lack of progesterone including menstrual disorders like, secondary amenorrhoea (menstrual periods that have stopped, are absent or irregular), dysmenorrhoea or painful periods, premenstrual syndrome and abnormal uterine bleeding, which occurs during the menstrual cycle instead of at the end. Duphaston tablets 10mg are also used to treat endometriosis (growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus causing pain and bleeding), infertility and spontaneous abortion (miscarriage); and are to counteract the stimulating effect of oestrogen on the endometrium, therefore reducing the risk of endometrial cancer, which can develop in response to oestrogen in women taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopausal symptoms. Adding a progestogen with an oestrogen is thought to help the feminisation process for male to female transsexuals and Duphaston 10 is used as a component of transgender hormone therapy, to help stimulate breast development and reduce the production of testosterone.
