I think the closer to 40 you are the sooner you need to see your GP.

We'd been trying for a while and I left going to GP I was 39 by this point! The NhS do lots of tests before they refer you to a fertility clinic if like in my case they couldn't find a problem.
For us after more tests with the fertility clinic it was advised I needed donor eggs...now this could take ages while they try to find a match if you decide you can get past the fact you need donor eggs.
Bare in mind that although a child is worth more than money but any NhS funding stops once your 40, there are discussions to up it to 42 but it is still being lobbied at government level.

So in a nutshell if your over 35 and been trying for a while get to your GP so to can discuss the best way forward
