Conceiving with Sero-negative Arthropathy

QUESTION

Dear Midwife, I am a young Sero-negative Arthropathy suffer and my husband and I are trying to fall pregnant. We are trying to find out as much as we can about the effects this disease has on the chances of falling pregnant. Just to make this even more difficult when I was 16, my gynecologist said I had polycystic ovaries even though they found no cysts when I had ultrasounds. I was put on the pill and had been taking it up until July this year. We have had no luck yet in conceiving so what can we do to increase the chances?
Question
Could I Be Pregnant Already?

QUESTION

Dear Midwife, I have been on a birth control for about 3 months and we've been married for 2 months. For the past 2 weeks I have been experiencing dizziness, nausea, more frequent urination, less energy, and I experienced heartburn for the first time 2 nights ago.
Question
How Soon can We Try Again?

QUESTION

Dear Midwife, My husband and I are both 36 years old. We tried for 11½ years before getting pregnant for the first time (without any fertility treatments tried). I did develop gestational diabetes during the pregnancy. Our healthy baby boy was born via cesarean section 5 weeks ago and we have two questions.
  1. When can we begin to try to conceive again?
  2. How long should we try before seeking help from the OB-GYN?
We want to try again as soon as we could as we feel our age is an issue. Thanks for your time and advice, Sarah
