Brief Answer:
Both Siphene and Ovagrace will help in conception.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Presence of multiple follicles in the ovary just after your periods finish is not in favor of a healthy egg release every month. Sometimes these follicles hamper normal ovulation.
There is no harm in going for an ovulation induction therapy- Siphene from day 3 of the periods for 5 days. Ovagrace is a supplement that helps in formation of healthy eggs. It is best to start the treatment as your gynecologist has advised even if there is no PCOD.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Details below.

Detailed Answer:
No. You cannot take Siphene without periods. It should be started from day 2 or day 3 of the periods.
It is best to take it with water on an empty stomach.
It is best to go for an ovulation study in this cycle and have regular sex according to the dates of ovulation.
