Omega 3 and flaxseed oil

Yesterday I bought Vital''''s Omega 3 supplement. I read on the box that it also has flaxseed oil in every capsule.

I have PCOS and we are trying to conceive.

I read that taking flaxseed oil during pregnancy and if you have PCOS is unsafe.

Can I continue using the supplement or should I rather stop because of the flaxseed oil it contains?
