Hello,
Duphaston is a progesterone preparation which helps in getting withdrawal bleeding if you are not pregnant.
It helps in supporting the pregnancy if you are pregnant, as it is the hormone of early pregnancy.
It will not help you to conceive per se.
As you are having PCOD, you are having hormonal imbalance which leads ti irregular ovulation.
So, you need medications for ovulation induction and ovulation study for monitoring growth of eggs.
You need to consult fertility specialist so that you and your husband will be evaluated for any other associated factor for infertility and treated accordingly.
Also, if you are overweight, need to reduce weight by diet and exercise.
Hope this clears your doubts.
