  • You may feel slight cramping, your cm will be light raw egg whites--very slippery and stretchy and your temp will be slightly elavated. You could also try using ovulation kits

  • Read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler and check out Charting cervical mucus will tell you when you're about to ovulate--it becomes very abundant and looks/feels like egg whites. Charting basal body temperature will tell you for sure when you have ovulated--it goes up by about 0.5ΒΊ and stays up from the day after you ovulate until your next period.

    However...once you ovulate, a period is imminent (unless you get pregnant, of course). The fact that you've gone so long without a period could be a problem, since you don't ovulate every month without a period. If it's just a matter of irregular periods, charting will help a ton. But you may want to be evaluated for conditions like PCOS; there are meds that could help with that.

  • Do a google search and Fertility Awareness Method and you will find a bunch of stuff on charting and knowing when you ovulate. Personally my body gives a slight cramp on the side that is releasing an egg and I get a very large increase in discharge for about 3 days before. I also chart my temps and so I know when I ovulate for sure based on those.
