Hi, I think you can try naturally for at least 6 months before undergoing any test. You can be in contact with your husband every 2 to 3 days after your periods stop. If your periods are irregular, then you can go for evaluation now. Do a thyroid profile and prolactin levels and a ultrasound for your uterus and ovaries. If everything is fine, you can take some medicines like clomiphene for the growth of your follicles and track your follicles growth by repeated ultrasound. When follicles reach a size more than 17 to 18 mm, take injection for rupturing the follicles. Be in contact with your husband for 2 to 3 days after injection. Take progesterone for next 2 weeks. Do a urine pregnancy test at home after that. You can try like that for 3 to 6 months. Hope I have answered your question.
