the duphaston prescribed to you should be taken in cycles of 10 or 21 days with next cycle starting from ur first day of period ...its a relatively safe drug and in PCOS it helps in maintaining progestrone levels...
Dydrogesterone is recommended in the treatment of infertility for several reasons:

it has no inhibitory effect on ovulation
it does not alter the normal pattern of secretory transformation of the endometrium
it does not inhibit the formation of progesterone in the human placenta during early pregnancy
it does not cause masculinisation of the female foetus.
...just get regular ultrasound check ups ...and hopefully u will concieve..
hope u get well soon

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
PCOS is a complex problem and difficult entity to treat.
You have to be treated not only by hormonal preparations which regulate the menstrual periods but also cause ovulation.
You have to be treated for hyperinsulinemia by prescribing metformin 500 mg twice daily for 6 months.
Another important aspect of the treatment is reduction of weight and regular vigorous daily exercises.
In addition get yourself tested for anemia and hypothyroidism.
Get your husband's semen analysis also done.
Be in regular touch with your gynecologist.
