See if the periods are irregular get a few tests like thyroid function test and hb and an ultrasonography done to find out any obvious causes of irregular periods,if any treat them after consulting your doctor.
Then regarding infertility treatment would advice you to undergo follicular study to know whether you are ovulating or not and you can try with ovulation induction drugs if too keen on concieving after consulting you doc.
Normally you ovulate from either ovaries each cycle but with ovulation induction drugs as per the doctors advice,many follicles develop from each ovary so chances of ovulation and pregnancy would increase,this has to be done with follicular study and with guidance of a qualified gynaecologist or infertility specialist

OBGYN Dr. Shanti Vennam's  Response
Since you have the history of irregular periods, predicting ovulation time is difficult. If your cycles fall in the 28-35 day range, then they are normal. Otherwise the cause for irregularity should be elicited and corrected. You need to wait for a few more cycles before you can try artificial induction methods. Meanwhile you can get investigated by an infertility specialist keeping your age in view. You can get a complete blood picture, hormonal profile, sonogram, anti-semen antibody testing and also assessment of the male factor. Further management depends on the results. Good luck.
