I am irregular too. The ovulation packs work or they wouldn't be on the market. Just make sure you read the directions very carefully!! Another way to do it is chart your cycles with a chart and basal thermometer, but this can take even a year to complete....and it's a pain!

hello diana

OPKs work very well, it works by measuring how much of hte LH hormone is in your body at any given time i dont explaine it very well sorry, but if you want to know more about them you can try peeonastick.com (please if thats against the tos someone tell me)

also mominshoe is right you should try bbt charting....its difficult (i tried and cant and stick to it) but it may help you....also you can try fertilityfriend.com, a lot of the girls here use it, it may help

good luck

I'm sorry AF showed. But i do suggest that you start temping. It's amazing what you can learn about your cycle.


Good luck!
