I have a irregular period.

Can be hard to tell: When you have irregular periods, it becomes more difficult to pinpoint when you ovulate. There are ovulation predictor kits (OPK) that you can buy over the counter.

Conception = 2 weeks: If you know the day, and there is no other possible day you could have become pregnant, use the day you had intercourse for the date of conception. It may be off by 24 hours or so but its a good estimate. By convention, conception occurs at 2 weeks of pregnancy. Its confusing but the convention is to use the first day of last period which is usually 2 weeks prior to conception. Best wishes! ...Read more

Wait and hope...: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed cycle. Another common cause is simply and anovulatory cycle, where your ovary does not release an egg for the one cycle, and thus no period comes. Wait for the next months scheduled cycle and see if the period comes. (remember though, if ovulation starts again you will be able to get pregnant then). If second misses, see the Dr (GYN). ...Read more
