What is your question exactly?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I don't know when I should be ovulating or when we should be trying because my period has been every 2 weeks for the last almost 3 months
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 month ago.

That is impossible to say, since you are clearly not on a 30 day cycle.

But in between the periods would be the most optimal time.

And you need a work up from a fertility specialist.

With this degree of being off a regular cycle, hormonal problems might be getting in the way, and you should have a sex hormone panel, thyroid studies, and adrenal studies.

If you take your temperature daily at the same time, in theory a light rise in your baseline temperature will be ovulation.

Also remember that a home pregnancy test is going to take 2 to 4 weeks to show positive.

However, a period every two weeks might indicate a problem, or not.

I would see a fertility specialist, and this is usually an endocrinologist.

OK, let me know if you have further questions.
