Suspicious.: It is very unusual. Typically, having regular predictable periods 29 days apart would require ovulation, to cause the hormonal changes that trigger the menstrual flow to occur. I wonder about how they diagnosed anovulation, if you had a low day 22 Progesterone level, or some other way.

Likely ovulating: Regular periods are an extremely strong indication of ovulation. And there is not a single blood test that can indicate otherwise. Clomid (clomiphene) might still be appropriate if your hormones are low, but you don't need it to make you ovulate in the first place.
