How do you know if you're ovulating if you have irregular periods? I haven't have a period in four months, and want to get pregnant.

In brief: Ovulation

Various methods for tracking ovulation include keeping a menstrual calendar, monitoring basal body temperature, changes in cervical/vaginal secretions.
If your period is irregular, it could be due to various reasons including no ovulation. In any case. See a physician for a full evaluation. Good health.

In brief: Use an ovulation kit

If you want to get pregnant and need to know the best days, you can use an ovulation prediction test kit.
Usually you start testing around day 12 and keep testing until it turns positive. A positive test means you will likely ovulate in 12 to 48 hours so you can time intercourse. There are also apps for your smart phone that will help you calculate your fertile days.
