In brief: Regular periods

You don't have regular periods without ovulating or taking hormones/ birth control.
If you periods are regular you are probably ovulating. If you want to test it, you can get an ovulation predictor kit and check or have your doctor test for progesterone in the second half of your cycle

In brief: Ovulation Kit

The best way to track your ovulation is to figure out when your next period is due to begin and count back 12 to 16 days.
This will give you a range of days when you will probably be ovulating. For women with a 28-day cycle, the 14th day is often the day of ovulation. To use this method, you must know how long your cycle usually lasts. Google "how to track ovulation", to get various sites to help.
