The doctor must have prescribed the tablets to regularise your body hormone levels which seem to be out of tune. It is not possible to get pregnant through these tablets as Ovral-L is a contraceptive,i.e., it inhibits ovulation. Taking this course should make your cycles moderate with normal flow. Then you can get investigated and go for the treatment of infertility as per your doctor's advice. Good luck.

ovral L 21 tablets are combined oral contraceptive pills, your doctor might have prescribed those to control your heavy flow during periods,
meprate tablets contain medroxyprogesterone, if your bleeding is getting controlled with ovral l then usually no need to use these, if you are only using them in second half of the cycle without ovral then they will help in implantation,
as I told ovral l are contraceptive pills you can not get pregnant by being on them, so you better consult your doctor and tell that you want to conceive, and with her advice better to stop ovral la and continue only progesterone which will increase the chances of pregnancy.
take care.
take care.
