Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) I understand you have irregular cycles hence you need evaluation b an infertility specialist for the same.

2) Please get Transvaginal scan to check if there is polycystic ovaries ( PCOS) due to which you are getting irregular cycles.

3) Ovulation occurs 14 days before cycles. Hence it is better if you get follicular growth scan ( FGS ) to check follicular growth and timing of ovulation.

4) Another option is to use ovulation predictor kit ( OPK ) i-sure for detecting ovulation by checking ovulation.

5) HSG ( Hysterosalpingogram ) has to be done for you to check tubal patency.

6) Check your husband's semen analysis and see if it is normal before subjecting yourself to more tests.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
