Hi!
If you were my patient, I would say, don't wait any time at all before trying.  It may be awhile before your cycles become regular, and that is the point at which conceiving is going to become easier.  IF your cycles don't become regular within 2-3 months, you may wish to speak with your doctor about adding additional medications to help you ovulate--that's what the medications are supposed to do.  Once you are ovulating, your cycles should be a predictable, and within 21-31 days long.  When your cycles are regular, it is lots easier to figure out how to time intercourse and increase you chances for success.
It is possible to conceive even before your cycles are regulated, so check a pregnancy test if you are not sure!
Good luck!
