Hello Regan, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Duphaston contains dydrogesterone which is a derivative of progesterone. The function of this drug is to help conditions that lack the hormone progesterone, for example: threatened miscarriage, menstrual pain, PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome, endometriosis, secondary amenorrhea (menstrual periods stop for more than 90 days), etc.
The following are conditions in which the drug should not be taken:
1. Allergy to dydrogesterone or any of the ingredients contained therein
2. Have a personal or family history of breast cancer, endometrial cancer, or liver disease
3. History of thrombosis or stroke
4. Bleeding from the genitals of unknown cause
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, so it is advisable not to take the drug. What can be done is to consult your doctor again before you take it, and tell that you have hepatitis B so that the doctor can give the right therapy according to your condition.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
