Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
Yes, women with PCOD may get pregnant if they are ovulating. This is quite possible in women who are getting treatment.
To check your ovulation status you may under go ultrasound follicle tracking or certain blood tests like serum progesterone in second half of your cycle.
To check your pregnancy status you may undergo pregnancy test once you are late for your periods.
Duphaston is not classified as a birth control pill but if taken in non-pregnant women may prevent ovulation. It has no serious side effects & is also given to pregnant ladies in some conditions. For a complete list of side effects you may read the patient information leaflet.
I hope I have addressed your concerns.
