How long should I wait
I have an irregular cycle, most times its 48 days but a few times I waited as long as 70 days. Its now day 50. My last gynae visit was last month, I was told everything is healthy and I could fall pregnant anytime. Should I take a HPT or wait till after day 70? Also could my asthma reliever medication cause me to miss my period? I would really like to have a baby, but I'm worried I'm getting my hopes up.
Please advise

With such long cycles, it sounds like you are not ovulating. Have you had this checked?
