I am a 35 year old femal who has never had children, been on the pill since I was 21. Is there a test I can do now, before I start trying to see if I can have children or carry a baby?

You should wait a few months

You should wait a few months after being on the pill before trying to conceive. You can get an ovarian reserve test, but the best thing to do is get a physical, get off the pill (make sure you use an alternate form of bc)and see how your cycle works. Do you regularly ovulate?

While you're on the pill, make an appointment with your doc and create a family building plan that's right for you.

Good luck!
