I have been having irregular periods for a few months now , I got my period on the 9th of last month, I got it on the 3rd of this month and it ended on the 9th, had unprotected on the 14th of this month. When can i ever be able to tell when to test for pregnancy (ie-at home test strips,etc) ???

  • I've had irregular periods for over 4 years.

    I learned that charting is the best thing for women with irregular periods. It took me 9 months to get pregnant with our first baby. I tried everything. Finally I got the book TAKING CHARGE OF YOUR FERTILITY and learned to chart. I got pregnant the first month of charting.

    Baby #2- STILL HAD IRREGULAR CYCLES, charted again and got pregnant in ONE MONTH.

    Baby# 3- STILL HAD IRREGULAR, LONG CYCLES, charted again and got pregnant in ONE MONTH. Sadly that ended in miscarriage.

    Now we are TTC again after the miscarriage. I haven't started ovulating again yet but I can almost guarentee you that my cycles will be irregular again. I am also a over weight. I'll chart again and hoping to concieve again very quickly.
