I Suffer from polycyctic ovarian syndrome which basically means my periods are not regular. Best way to judge when you are ovulating is by the Billings Method. Basically your normal vaginal discharge get a bit runny like egg white (eww I know) at the time of ovulation which is generally between 12-14 days after the first day of you period. it may pay to count the days from when you first bleed then observe your discharge. Some women are like clockwork, some all over the show. Good luck!

I don' t know how you are telling when you ovulate, but I used fertilityfriend.com to track everything I needed. I used this website when trying with both of my boys and about 4 months after I really started paying attention to what my body was doing I was pregnant. There's a lot on the website to help with answering questions and tracking cycles and all kinds of other things. I hope this helps.

Well, the thing is I bleed for a bit .. then stops. So I guess my question is what day do I use for ovulation. I will have a heavy period in a couple of days but which is the right day? Today wi/little bleeding or in a few days when it's heavy? Yes, we are planning on getting pregnant.

That happened when I got pregnant as well. Just a day or so of bleeding and then it stopped. They call it "implantation bleeding" because it's caused by the embryo digging itself in to the side of the uterus. It could be that for you, too.

Hi Patty, Trying to get pregnant? If the flow was a small amount a pad or two...there is a chance of pregnancy. Unless, you end up with a regular period. With my first child I had a mini period of 3 days and that was unusal. Typically, ovualation is between 10-14 days from the first day of your period. You can also purchase ovualtion kits at the stores.
