User avatar Hello,
I would recommend you getting a preconception appointment with your OB/GYN to discuss your fertility since you have not had periods. If you prefer not to do this then the best plan is just to have regular sexual intercourse and let nature take its course. In women less than 35 it can take up to a year to become pregnant before we would be concerned but since you may not be ovulating as evidenced by the amenorrhea, it would be timely to have it checked out first.

Good luck and best wishes.
