Trying to conceive

Hello all, I am new to this and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I have been reading lots of different forums and trying to find someone who has been in the same situation as me. I have read lots which are quite the similar, but there are some key differences.
I came off the pill (Dianette) at the end of August. I have been taking the pill on and off for about 15 years. I had my period as normal, starting 5 days after last pill, and then my next period started 10 days early and was fairly heavy, dark and a thicker consistency than normal. Since then I have had no period and I am currently 18 days late.
My husband and I want to start trying for a baby in the new year and we have been very careful, although I can't be 100% sure. I wanted to try and get my periods into some sort of rhythm before trying to get pregnant. Last Sunday I took a pregnancy test as I had been feeling sick, and at that point I wass 11 days late. It was negative and I have have had no sickness this week.
I am just worried as every other time I have come off the pill my periods have been very regular. How long should I leave it before going to see the doctor? Any advice would be greatly received as I am trying not to get too stressed but beginning to feel worried.

I forgot to say that for 3 weeks I have been taking Pregnacare Conception. Can this have an effect on periods?

Thank you Soon2BJacks. I was wondering whether there was a link. Maybe I should see about trying the Sanatogen mother to be.

Well, my period started today . I stopped taking the Pregnacare on Saturday so I think there may be some connection there. I have just bought the Sanatogen Mother to be so hopefully that won't have the same effect.
Thanks again Soon2BJacks x

Hi Kirstycake, I haven't heard anything about the seven seas tablets, but if you look on the thread which Soon2BJacks began it has some interesting points made by a number of people. I guess the different supplements effect people differently.
On the downside of waiting so long for a period, the period pains are a hell of a killer! I'm hoping that my periods will become regular from now on.
How long have you been off the pill and using seven seas for? x
