Hello , I'm 44 and trying to conceive with no success . Im finding I'm starting my period 5 days early lightly for a day then it goes away then starts on time the past 4 months . This confuses me for ovulation and i wonder if i even ovulate . Ive had three kids when i was younger two are adults and my last is 11. My partner believes in fate and wants a natural pregnancy , I fear those days are over as each month no pregnancy :(. I try to judge ovulation and honestly we are together every two days anyways . I don't smoke I've done acupuncture , vitamins, natural herbs , I don't want to give up but i feel sad . Today my period came again just once i would like to be late with a positive test .

Maybe, but you ARE 44, so you shouldn't have expected that it would be smooth sailing.

Have you had your hormones tested? If your period has become less regular and has changed, you may find that you are pre-menopausal, in which case, you may be ovulating irregularly.
