  • Buy the book Taking Control of Your Fertility. I have very irregular periods and had no problems getting pregnant. I just needed to educate myself about my body first.

  • Mine are irregular, they range from 2 weeks to 12 week cycles. I've had 6 pregnancies so far so they seem to have not had any impact at all on my fertility. As for ovulation I just tried all the time, well we never really planned, we just let what was going to happen happen. Take your test based on your longest cycle, that's what I did.

  • It doesn't make it impossible. However my bff had to get an ultrasound done after her cycle went MIA for three months and every pregnancy test came back negative. Even if you are irregular you should notice persistent symptoms like nausea and breast tenderness. Maybe even feel like you want to sleep all the time. I'd invest in dollar store tests and use them when you get symptomatic and if your cycle skips more than one month.

  • You don't say how irregular you are but I would suggest charting. It will give you an idea on how your cycles work and can help you identify potential problems not ovulating or luteal phase defect for example. A BBT is pretty cheap to get and there are sites like fertility friend or ovusoft that will help with the charting part.

    If you do have problems getting pregnant your charts could actually help your doctor pinpoint the issue.

  • I went thru this as well, I have PCOS and it was very frustrating b/c I could go 3 months w/o having a period. My Dr put me on Metformin and it regulated my hormones and I was pregnant w/in a month in a half. If you're overweight, it's always good to try to lose it as well. I went to dietician as well. GL to you

    Irregular periods do NOT matter at all when your charting! I have NO TROUBLE concieving at all even though I have VERY irregular cycles because I chart.

  • There could be a problem like PCOS that you might want to speak to an doctor about. But just having irregular periods does not mean you cannot get pregnant. It might be a bit more difficult.

  • I was just like you, I could go months without getting my period and here I am today :) 7 weeks pregnant (came as a surprise though)
