Hi all, I'm new to this site and a little late coming to the party at 44.
I've just spent a year losing 6 stone and had not had a long term partner in years because I was embarrassed about my weight. I came off the mini pill Cerazette 8 months ago and started monitoring my ovulation by basal temperature and then ovulation sticks but I haven't ovulated since I stopped it. I now have a partner and we would like to try for a baby.
I went to the doctors and my fertility blood tests all came back normal so I was advised to take folic acid to try to kick start my ovulation. I brought the before conception Pregnacare tablets but it says on the pack to only take for 3 months prior to starting to try for a baby. We haven't been together that long and have planned a big holiday to Australia in December so were thinking about trying then when we're most relaxed.
Can I start to take the Pregnacare now or should I wait till September?
Thank you for your help
