Until your periods become regular, to my knowledge, you won't be able to become pregnant. You have to get a period to ovulate.

You need to talk to your doctor about regulating your menstrral cycle and see what they can do to help you ovulate. That would be a start. Maybe you and your husband shouldn't try so hard. Just enjoy each other and have fun and I am sure that before you know it you might just get preggers.

not quite - it's the other way round. You have to ovulate to get a period.
The hormones produce by the ovaries after relesing an egg are what causes the period.

To the original poster see your doc or gyn. You may need a course of hormones to help regulate your periods.
Irregular periods don't mean you can't concieve but will definately make it more difficult.

Seeing as your doctor already said you will have problems when it comes to conceiving I suggest you go back to him/her as it sounds as if they already know about any condition you may have.
