Hi, Its really early days for us (cycle 3) after 20yrs on bc pill, but as i'm 37 someone told me don't wait the usual 12-18months of trying before seeing someone. I've no reason to think there's an issue, i just want to be prepared. I had a pre- meeting with my GP at xmas, told him that we were hoping to TTC after wedding in April and asked his advice about coming off bc pill etc. he said as i was on one of the better bc brands that i should theoretically start ovulating right away, so i finshed pill at end march - and that the bc shouldnt really effect things 'normalising', as a lot of bc brands might. He said that the only thing that might be an obstacle is my age. Someone ttc for first time at 37 might not ovulate every month regardless of bc history. Anyhoo.. Im using opks and charting bbt just to try make sure im actually ovulating - and im pretty sure i did on both the 2 cycles - got pos opks both times and temp rise 1-2 days after that stayed up til af arrived. Been given a clearblue fertility monitor to try this month too, so we'll see. The question is... How long would you wait/try before seeking help ? Some books say 6-9 months when over 35 ? Thoughts ? Experiences ?
