How to increase progesterone secretion naturally?

I'm being treated for Polycistic Ovaries. I've been advised to take birth control pills to regulate Progesterone. Is there any way to increase the secretion of Progesterone?

Can you please give me a list of foods that tend to increase the secretion of Progesterone? Are there any Do's and Don'ts regarding this?

Please clarify me.

It says Wild Yams, Egg yolks,dairy products, foods with Vitamin B6 and foods with Zinc, as wellas herbs turmeric, oregano, and thyme. There probably more but those are a start.
