Dear Preggers

If you have intercourse every second day and are having irregular cycles then certainly if you are ovulating you should be able to conceive. My concern is that having irregular menstrual cycles may indicate that ovulation may not be taking place. To find out if you are ovulating or not you could do one of two tests, the first one being a urinary ovulation test which is a commercial test that is available at most pharmacies or you could do a day-21 progesterone level which is a blood test and if the progesterone level is high then this will indicate that ovulation is taking place.
