Doctor :   The chances of conceiving are high, if the sexual intercourse is around the ovulation days.
Doctor :   The day of ovulation can be calculated based on menstrual cycle, however if the cycles are irregular as it has been now, the calculation method of predicting ovulation is unreliable.
Doctor :   Roughly, the days of ovulation will fall between 12-16 days of the period(a 28day cycle).

Doctor :   These days are not considered fertile if her cycles are a 28days cycle(the first day is counted from the beginning of the period)
