Our expert says:
The fact that you have an irregular cycle and miss periods between 2 to 3 months at a time would indicate that there is a hormonal imbalance and that you may not be ovulating every month. In addition the fact that you are now beyond the age of 35 and as you mentioned you are 38, your natural ability to conceive starts reducing after 35. It is not impossible for you to conceive but the earlier you plan your pregnancy and the earlier you get help in regulating your periods, when you have a partner, the better it would be for you to achieve a pregnancy.
