Trying to conceive. Not on birth control. History of irregular periods. Chances of conceiving?

Hi, I have always had irregular periods and I m currently 26 (I ll be 27 in November). My husband and I have been married 14 months and have only been using the withdrawal method, no birth control , because we weren t actively trying to get pregnant but it wouldn t be upsetting if we did. I just want to know if I m still ovulating even if I m irregular and if that lessens my chances of getting pregnant. We want to start trying soon but I don t know if I should be on fertility medication or need to do something extra to increase my chances. Thanks.

Thanks for writing to us.
Irregular cycles are not always associated with ovulation. To know your status, you can check your urine during the midcycle for an LH surge using an LH surge kit available in pharmacies. Positive test indicates possible ovulation in next 24 hours.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
