Do you know whether you ovulate? Thank you.
Regular ovulation is what causes regular periods. Your recent early periods are strongly suggestive that you haven't ovulated in the past 2 months.
Not ovulating becomes more common as a woman ages. It's not too unusual for a woman to go without ovulation at age 36.
Since you wish to become pregnant, I would recommend that you see a doctor. Some tests will confirm whether or not you've ovulated lately. If not, it's usually fairly easy to get you to ovulate by taking some pills (clomid) for 5 days each month.
There's no way to know whether or not you'll ovulate tomorrow, but you can't get pregnant without ovulating. So I would see a doctor soon. Best wishes.
During the months when you had regular periods, you were probably ovulating regularly.
How long have you been trying to get pregnant?
Since you've only been trying for 2 months, you could give it some time to see whether your periods become regular again. However, I wouldn't wait very long if they're not regular. Fertility for women decreases each year after age 30. You're not as fertile as you were 5-10 years ago, so you don't want to waste much time if you're not ovulating.
I can tell that you haven't ovulated since June 28, and probably not the month before that.
I already told you. Since you wish to become pregnant, see your doctor. You'll probably be given pills to help you to ovulate.
I wouldn't be worried as long as you do something about it. Not ovulating is the most treatable form of infertility.
