The problem of headache / nausea/ vomiting with a history of PCO. The PCO leads to irregular cycles, so it should not be of major concern. The dosage of norethisterone u take is insufficient.
Now the issue is if u wanna have regular cycles then you need to be on cyclical hormones which will produce regular cycles.
Chances of a pregnancy are greatly reduced in PCO, however, the cyclical hormones will protect as well.
Do u have headaches as a regular feature ? Could these be migraines ? or is just due to the stress of a diagnosis.

So, the plan should be to get a internal examination done followed by an USG to rule out pregnancy and any increase in size of the ovarian cysts. And then proceed with the treatment.

However, in your case with a history of headaches use of hormones would have to be supervised.
