Thanks for posting your query.
Taking Ovex is not recommended in pregnancy.
It is a Category C drug which means that it may not be safe to use during pregnancy but since you have already taken it, you can go for a level II scan at 18 weeks to detect any fetal anomalies.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
