If you suspect pregnancy, you can take a home pregnancy test with a fresh early morning sample. In PCOD, ovulation is either absent or irregular and pregnancy cannot be predicted. Nevertheless, pregnancy tests can always be performed as usual. You may also get a blood test and a trans-vaginal sonogram. You should see a specialist to assess your condition and if you are not pregnant, get treated for the condition as persistent frequent bleeding can compromise your general condition. Wish you good health.
