So i've been trying to get pregnant for about 7 months. I just started tracking my period in October and this is what is has been:
Started Oct. 20
Started Nov. 28
Started Jan. 2
From the 20th to the 28th that's 40 days!
From the 28th to the 2nd that's 35 days!
I just put that into an ovulation calculator to see when I could possibly ovulate and they said I may not be ovulating since my periods are so far apart. I'm going to make and appointment but what are some things that COULD be wrong with me? Anyone else ever had this problem?
For one you need to be patient stop rushing things and relax you are probably worring about getting pregnant so bad you are throwing off you body by worring too much.
Just let it happen you will get there. Nothing is wrong with you. Soon you will have your baby.

I have had this problem my whole life. Never able to track periods or even knowing when the cycle would start. I tried everything (birth control, had numerous surgeries). The long cycles make it impossible to track ovulation. We started trying to get pregnant back in Oct 2006. I went on Clomid last Feb - high dosage lead me to having a surgery. I was finally diagnosed this summer with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome. I was sent to a Fertility Specialist and on our first IUI cycle we got pregnant and we are due on Aug 5. It is a very draining process emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially on both you and your partner but it is worth it. If you would like to talk let me know. Best of luck!

I've had irregular periods my entire life, usually about 35-40 days apart, same as you, but sometimes as short as 24 days and sometimes as long as 79. But I know I ovulate because I started charting my BBT a few years ago, and I've only had one anovulatory cycle in all that time. An irregular period does not mean you're not ovulating, just that it can be harder to pinpoint when it's happening. I would recommend charting (try www.fertilityfriend.com, it can teach you a lot), that's probably what a doctor will have you do anyway to know if you are ovulating, and go from there. (Do that for a few months before seeing the doctor, that way you don't feel like you're wasting time when he has to do tests to see if you're ovulating or not.)
