    Long cycles, Am I still ovulating?

    I am 37 years old and have been ttc for approximately six months. I have no insurance so can't go to have testing done. My cycles are ranging from 28 days to 37 days. Do you think I am ovulating? If not do you have any suggestions. I have purchased a basal body thermometer and I am going to start charting this month. I have had 3 previous pregnancies. One when I was 28 with a c-section birth, one at 32 which was an etopic and one at 33 with a normal c-section birth. I stopped taking the pill at the end of August 2012. Please any advice would be appreciate.

    I have studied the information and to the best that I can tell that if your cycles are longer than 35 days you are probably not ovulating. I think I ovulate on day 17 last cycle and I am on day 35 and still haven't start. I am hoping and praying that this is our lucky month.
