  • I would recommend charting your temp, cervical mucous and position. The temp and position will tell you if you are indeed ovulating or not. The rest will tell you if you are fertile. This is a start for your doc to know what steps to take instead of shooting in the dark. A good book to help is "Taking Charge of your Fertility" by Toni Weschler.

  • If you haven't had a period, you haven't been ovulating. It's possible to have a period without ovulating, but not the other way around.
