With : With women who have irregular periods, it can be very difficult to determine the time of ovulation. In general women ovulate 10-14 days after the first day of their last period. So for example, if you had a period on march 1st, you would typically ovulate on march 10-14th. Of course this can vary from patient to patient.

14 days before: You ovulate 14 days before your next period. If you know how many days between one period to the next then subtract 14 days from that number. Then you can predict the day you should ovulate. Try an over the counter ovulation kit too to help.

See your doctor: You are correct to be concerned. Many women have irregular and abnormal periods. Many of them can be managed medically, the rest may need to have a surgical procedure to correct their problem. The only way to know is to see your doctor for evaluatin and management.

Ovulation predictor: Women who don't ovulate don't have regular periods. An ovulation predictor kit is a good way of confirming that you are ovulating - get from a pharmacy, don't buy a monitor. Start testing every day from day 10 in your cycle (day 1 is the first day of your period). Test between 10 am and noon. If you test for a couple of months and it's not working see your OB or a fertility specialist if ttc.

Use an OPK kit: If you have regular cycles use an ovulation predictor kit (opk) - test between 10 am and noon, starting on day 10 of your cycle. The first morning urine is not accurate. Try the ovuquick brand (available online, get the 9 stick pack) if a drugstore test doesn't work for you. The day of a positive test and the next 2 days are your most fertile days. If you have irregular cycles see a rei specialist.
