Doctor: Thank you for your query.Approximately after 7 to 10 days past the expected date of menstrual cycle, the home pregnanc y test should give accurate results, whether the pregnancy is there or not. It is advisable that if your periods are regular opt for pregnancy test after 2 to 3 days later .Since you have stopped the duphaston tablets on day 30 of your cycle calculation done according to the details in your query, you may get your period if you are not pregnant in another 2-3 days as it would take ~3-5 days to get period after duphaston tablets are stopped in absence of a pregnancy .You seem to be getting too anxious .Anxiety ,stress and strain are not good when trying to conceive ,be cool, it may take few cycles before you conceive for all the hormonal parameters & endometrial mileu have to fall in place making things favorable for a conception to take place .Humans are not very efficient in reproduction only 25% of the eggs produced in a women’s life time are capable of giving to a pregnancy. Some conceive in the first cycle for some it can take two or more attempts etc.Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
