How to conceive if you have irregular periods
My name is Joanna Cortez and I really need help or like tips on how I will conceive. I am married for about 13 months, and if we will be blessed, he/she will be our first born child. The problem is I was having an irregular period before and lately I noticed that my cycle turns out to be like 24-27 days cycle. So, I am not really sure if it already became regular or if it is like something else. Now because of this we were really having hard times on hitting my fertility periods. Some say I can easily detect it through my body temperature and some say I can just count it based on my periods. Well, that is really the problem, since I have irregular periods, I don't know where to start with the counting. Like what they say the dangerous days. I hope you can help me with this because all I want and dreamed of is to be a mum and we are really excited to be parents, especially me. And I'm really sick and tired of seeing negative result from a pregnancy test. :(
Also, if possible, I want to ask you tips on how I will conceive easily. Thanks A lot. Hope you will help me with this.
Detecting Ovulation Even With Irregular Cycles
Irregular cycles (especially skipping a month or two) are often caused by PCOS (Polycistic Ovary Syndrome). PCOS is often passed on from mother to daughter, so in Anukriti's case, it would make sense that her Grandmother, Mother and herself may all have a predisposition to PCOS. If you'd like a little more information on PCOS do a search in the forums and you'll find more posts about it.
But as for how to conceive if you have irregular periods... the first thing you'll want to do is learn how to get your baby making sex timing perfect.
Counting days is not helpful when you have irregular cycles, and ovulation calendars won't give very accurate dates for someone with irregular cycles simply because they are based on an "average" cycle (having the same number of days from month to month) and women with irregular cycles don't have this.
It's really important that you learn how to read your body's fertility signs so you'll be able to catch your fertile window when it happens.
