Welcome to

I understand your concern. As you have shared that you have a past history of PCOD and is trying to conceive. PCOS is a complex disease but not difficult to manage once the hormonal imbalance is corrected. I would suggest to consult a gynecologist and take proper following medication, once your doctor has examined you and have ruled out any other cause she may start you on Progesterone pill to support the pregnancy, Clomiphene citrate to help induce the periods and maintain fertility, FSH analogue can be useful.

Avoid stress, take healthy diet, drink plenty of water, do regular exercise and manage weight if overweight. Additional supplements like Folic acid, Calcium and Iron should also be taken.
