In brief: That's the hope

If just looking a some intermittent vaginal bleeding with irregular cycles, it seems hard to guess whether or not there was an ovulation 2 weeks earlier. However, if the intermittent bleeding becomes regular, as in every 4 weeks or some other consistent interval between 24-34 days, then one would have a lot more confidence that there was an ovulation 2 weeks before each menstrual period.
