Taking contraceptives, for severe periods. Undergone endometriosis surgery. Induced provera. When should we test for infertility?

I have been on birth control since 2002 for my periods being so severe I had a laporscopy twice once in 2006 and once in 2011. When I was on birth control I took it continuously and rarely had a period. Now I am trying to get pregnant and am really struggling. I am begining to do research and realizing that stopping my period like that was not healthy. I had surgery for endometriosis then I had depot lupron for 3 months and I am having trouble getting my period back. Last month my gyno put me on provera to medically induse my period it worked but now I am at the same spot again my gyno said to try provera for another month but I am 27 and my husband is 31 we want to be more aggressive any advice? When should i start to test for infertility?? in me and my husband? Please Help

Thanks for writing to us.
You are not having any regular periods. Irregular periods are likely to be anovulatory. You need to be patient and provera for 10 days in every cycle to have a normal regular bleeding. This will help in regularizing your cycles.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
