Hello Priyanka from India,

I think you need to see a competent infertility specialist, NOT a general gynecologist.  Only infertility specialists do IVF, so to find one, just ask whether or not they do IVF (at least in the U.S.  I don't know about in India).  The duphaston did nothing to treat your infertility or to help you get pregnant.

Good Luck,
