When should I start IVF?

I am a lady of 30 years who has got pregnant before but all resulted in miscarriage. Now I have done two surgeries on both my fallopian tubes. Meaning I have no tubes. Last surgery was an ectopic, which was done about two weeks ago. So my doctor told me that the only option is to do IVF. So I'm asking how many years or months should I wait before starting IVF?
