Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the ovulation status without examining you and going ahead with getting further evaluation to look for evidence of ovulation. If periods are not regular, it would indicate anovulatory cycles. If you are trying to get pregnant, it is important that you have regular periods. Discuss with your doctor/gynecologist about going ahead with further evaluation to rule out chances of hormonal derangements, ovarian suppression, PCOS etc. Get started on treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) to regulate your periods.
If you are trying for pregnancy, monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
