Hi!
If you were my patient, I would start an evaluation right away.  If you are not ovulating, a medicationsuch as Femara or Clomid might be helpful.  Of course you are not old by today's standards, but you don't want to waste any time either.  Your ob doctor might want to do some blood tests such as prolactin, TSH, FSH and progesterone levels too, to see if one of these medications might be right for you.
Good luck!
