A textbook period happens every 24-29 days, but in truth what is “regular” covers a wide range. Cycles between 23–35 days are very common. A woman may get her period only one to four times a year. Or she might have periods that occur two to three times in a month and involve spotting or extremely heavy flow. Alternatively, she may have heavy episodes of bleeding every two to three months. Irregular periods are simply what is irregular for you.  With that said, may I suggest that maybe you start charting your cycles.  That’s the best way, in my opinion, to know if you are actually O’ing.  I, and most of the bees here, use Fertility Friend.  It is easy to use and easy to follow.  GL

@MelanieHope:  hmm what you guys are doing would not work Well for me. I typically O around CD 20. Do you know when you are ovulating for sure? Have you thought about trying charting or oPKs to get a better sense of whether you guys are actually getting the timing right?

@MelanieHope: Good luck! Definitely look into charting. You might be missing your window. With longer cycles, you are almost certainly ovulating later than CD17.
