I am 41, trying to get pregnant. I cannot pinppoint

Customer Question

I am 41, trying to get pregnant. I cannot pinppoint ovulation. My period was regular but more then 28 days. I gained weight and had the gastric sleeve last June 2014. I have lost 110 pounds since then. In 2012, i had a large cyst removed along with my
left ovary and tube. My periods are not quite normal right now, the last 2 - 3 have been scanty, very very light and almost non exsistant but for some leaking. i just had my physical blood tests and I am anemic....no surprise i have always been anemic but
this time its very low. Doc wants an iron pill 2 times a day. 1. Is this what causes the scanty period? Or is this caused by something else? 2. What can i do to ovulate on my own and get pregnant before its too late. period start cycle length 22 Jun 2015 --
