ttc after bc... please help

I stopped my bc in dec. I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen. I didn't have a regular period until February 10th. I have been taking prenatal vitamins since oct. I also have been doing ovaulation tests they have all been negative. I already have 2 kids. With my first I wasnt on bc. And my second I stopped taking bc and got prego 3 months later. So im now 27 and it seems like its not gonna happen. Someone please give me some Insight... Thanks.

Hi!
If you are having regular periods, chances are good that you are ovulating, despite what your tests are showing.  I would consider doing a cycle day 21 progesterone level to see if you are ovulating.  If so, and if there have been no other changes, you probably just need more time.  85% of normally fertile couples will conceive within one year.
Hope this helps!
