Blood donation does not affect production of sperms. Pain in the ovaries before a the period is due is not because of ovulation, so it needs to be examined. Polycystic ovarian disease and endometriosis are the two conditions that can cause pain at any time during a cycle. You can continue using ovaa shield tablets but under the surveillance of your doctor as monitoring for super ovulation and other complications is needed while on treatment. Polycystic ovarian disease responds very well to treatment most often and there is every chance of pregnancy. Further suggestions can be had from your doctor. Take care.
