You should talk to you doctor. I personally don't ovulate on my own which leads to irregular cycles. With no ovulation, there is no progesterone increase/decrease to lead to a period. My doctor tested my hormones and figured this out. From there they treated me with medication to help me ovulate and conceive my first two children. I am currently trying for our third. There are many reasons why you could be irregular and none of them are reasons to be scared to talk to your dr. It isn't good to try and take something over the counter or prescribed to aid in fertility without doctor supervision. They have heard it all and can best help you!! Good luck on your journey and feel free to stick around on these boards to get support. They have helped me so much through it all.

I completely agree with blueeyebaby's response. Let's be proactive about figuring this out. I would not use over-the-counter products and expose a potential pregnancy to products that might not be necessary.

Get in and see your caregiver. Tell them your history and let them investigate your issues. There may be some very easy and straightforward treatments that will help normalize your cycles and help you get pregnant. Knowledge is power in this situation.

Best wishes and keep us updated.
