In brief: Basal Body Temp

Basal body temperature (bbt) with a special thermometer works, but the temperature rises after you ovulate.
You test before you move out of bed each morning. Ovulation predictor kits are more useful when ttc as they go positive 1-1.5 days before you ovulate, so you know your most fertile days. If you have very irregular periods don't do bbt, see a fertility md to find out why you're irregular.
