Getting Pregnant With Irregular Periods

Since coming off the pill in october last year I have only had 1 period, which was at the end of february. I have seen my doctor but they've told me to wait a few more months and go back then! My fiancee and I really want a baby and i'm not sure if i'm even ovulating without my period? It's so frustrating not knowing if I can get pregnant, i've started taking agnus castus to try and kick start my periods but wondered if anyone had any other advice or personal experiences to share please!

I have not not had a period sense last november. My doctor said that it is rare but possible to not to have a period for 6 months after stopping birth control, but now it has been longer than that. My doctor offered to start me on the fertility drug clomid, but I am not sure if I am ready for that yet. She said that if I don't start having a period the only way that I will get pregnant is with fertility drugs. Is this what everyone else has heard? Has any one had luck with regulating there period with herbal supplements?

I am taking vitex (chaste berry). I stopped birth control in january and have had 3 cycles. The last one was 68 days. My doctor just gave me a prescription for progesterone. I'm supposed to take that if my cycle runs longer than 30-35 days. She says that can trigger your body into a regular cycle. She said if that doesn't work after 3 cycles, then we will move on to clomid.

I think the vitex may help. When I stopped taking birth control the first time, I didn't have a cycle at all for months. I ended up having to do the progesterone thing that time also.
