Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

The only way to confirm is take a pregnancy test. The commonest causes of irregular periods are polycystic ovary, thyroid problems, high cholesterol, Cushing’s disease and disorders of adrenal gland, tumors of the ovaries and adrenals, insulin resistance, obesity and hormone imbalance.

When you have irregular periods, it is difficult to determine when you are ovulating and sometimes there is no ovulation. This is not something you can diagnose on net. Please consult a gynecologist. Correcting the problem will increase the chances of conceiving. Take care!
