Tracking ovulation is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it. I have irregular periods (sometimes 2 mo. apart!) My husband and I use NFP (Natural Family Planning because I didnt want to use a chemical to control when I got pregnant and when I didnt.) The method we use is the Sympto-Thermal method with which you chart your temperature and "symptoms" (such as cervical mucus) every morning. We, eventually, just started charting my temperature and just noticing the symptoms but not writing them down or anything. We know exactly what day my daughter was conceived because we knew exactly what days I was most likely to get pregnant.
I have a friend who was trying this method and through her charts she saw that something was wrong. She brought the charts to her doctor and found that she had a condition that made it hard for her to conceive. This method is natural and really gets you tune with your body
