Thanks for your query.
Since you have been taking medications for treatment of fertility and induction of ovulation(Ovashield)I shall hope that you get pregnant.
If you have a regular 28 days cycle then you will probably get periods around 28 th of March and if you don't then get a pregnancy test done.
If you need to find out early whether you are pregnant you can get a Beta HCG(beta human chorionic gonadotropin) that is a blood test for pregnancy done to confirm pregnancy.
The test can be done 6-10 days after ovulation or 3 weeks since your last menstrual period so you can get it done.
Once the test is positive then you will need to take these precautions:-
1-You should avoid caffiene containing drinks like black or XXXXXXX tea,coffee,aerated drinks like cola,
2-You should avoid certain foods like unpasteurized cheese,unpasteurized milk, juices XXXXXXX cider raw eggs or foods containing raw eggs including mousse,raw or undercooked fish (like in sushi) or meats,
3-If you have a pet cat you need to stay away from it especially from cleaning its litter(stool and urine),
4-Avoid over the counter medications and do not take any medication without your doctors advice,
5-You should regularly take your thyroid medicines,
6-Keep away from artificial sugar and products that contain these sugars,
7-Avoid close contact with household chemicals like cleaners,pesticides,etc,
8-You should avoid overheating like sauna bath,hot tub bath etc,
9-Avoid exposure to X-rays.
Finally the frequent abdominal pain you have can either be a sign that you may get your periods and it could even be a sign of threatened abortion if you are pregnant.
For this pain you need to consult your Gynaecologist.
Hope this answer is helpful to you.
In case I have missed out on any of your concern do write back and I shall help you.
Please accept this answer if you have no further queries.
Best of luck.
Take care.
Warm regards

Thanks for your reply.

I am still having abdominal pain frequently but it is not continuously happening. I am taking daily medicine of Thyroid and Ovaa Shield. If i don't get pregnant this month then please advice how to proceed for next month because I am not sure and scared about not having pregnancy from past 2 months.

You have written for abdominal pain, which can be a sign of periods or abortion if i am pregnant. How can i observed regarding abortion if it happened? Please let me know your views.
