Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Having intercourse during intake of Ovral G will not affect your future fertility.
But as long as you are taking Ovral G, you would not conceive since it acts as a birth control pill.
After the tablets are over, you need to remain sexually active without pills to be able to conceive.
Having intercourse once a week is not adequate for conception.
You need to remain sexually active every alternate day from the 10th day onwards of your cycle.
With PCOD, your periods may be irregular.
If you do not conceive within 6 months, you have to consult a doctor and get follicular monitoring done to know the exact days of ovulation, and remain sexually active on those days.
All the best.
