Have you had hormones tested? You could possibly have PCOS. I was like you I would have went probably a year without af and I've just been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. My doctor started me on metformin and within three weeks I ovulated on my own and af showed on her own. I think I am now getting ready to ovulate on my own again on cycle day 13-17 which will put me at a normal cycle length of around 30 days. Your ob can order the bloodwork then if it comes back elevated they will refer you to an endocrinologist. It's worth looking into since you are ttc. I love the metformin it has down wonders for me physically and helping me with ttc. You can also take clomid in conjunction with it if you don't ovulate within the first month. Wishing you the best in your journey!!!!

The same thing happens to me. I am now using Vitex it will make AF come within days. I will continue to use this and it prepares your body for conception. I heard good things.

Ive been on provera and clomid, and i started having regular periods for a few months. But then they stop on both of them tablets too, i just dont understand it any more. im fed up with wishing for my body to start working. :(

My periods were very irregular because I wasnt ovulating my doctor put me on provera and clomid that helped and since I ovulated my period started on its own. Maybe the provera challenge will help you good luck

I have heard that over-exercise and being underweight can stop periods. Whether or not that is a possibility, i would see an ob/gyn for help! Good luck.

i know your obviously wanting to get pregnant,but have you tried BC to help get you alittle more regular? thats what im doing now,we are planning on ttc starting oct..i have irreg periods too,but BC helps soo much. so i put myself on it for 3 months before ttc. ive also heard it makes u very fertile after stopping..& the pill leaves your system within 72 hrs of taking last pill,so u dont have to worry about that..well, i hope this helps! good luck to you & BABY DUST!!****
