2weeks before period: Two weeks before the next expected period is the easiest time to get pregnant, because that's when most women ovulate.

Unsure: "fertile days" are not related to how long your period lasts. They are based on when you ovulate. What matters more is how close one period is to another. If you have a 28 day cycle, most likely you are most fertile between days 12 and 16. So figure out how many days between the beginning of one cycle to the beginning of the next cycle, assuming your cycles are regular and have sex in the middle. ...Read more

Other workup?: I assume you have discussed this at some point with your doctor if you were on birth control pills, but did they do any other workup- blood work, ultrasound? Not having regular periods definitely affects fertility so if you are thinking of getting pregnant, I would see your doctor for further workup to see if your periods can be regulated to make you more fertile. ...Read more
