How are you trying to 'predict' your ovulation? Are you using FAM (fertility awareness method) or urine tests or anything? It must be terribly difficult to figure out your ovulation when your cycles are not very consistant. I'm gonna be honest with you here... if you aren't getting your period for 7 weeks sometimes then something isn't right. This is not good. Do you have any pain? Have you been checked for things like PCOS or endometriosis? Have you had your hubby go for a semen analysis? These things along with hormones tests for the both of you is where I'm thinking you should start. Please buy the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility, it's one of the most important books you'll ever read! Infertility sucks!

I think you can consult the doctor. I think there are many devices available where you can check that for yourself. but best the doctor can help./

Hi - I'm so sorry you're going through that. Secondary infertility is no fun :( There are several reasons that could be causing you and your hubby to not conceive. My best advice is to make an appt with your dr. Since you have been trying for one full year, you meet the criteria to go through some testing. It could be a variety of things such as you're not ovulating (can easily be treated with medications such as clomid), or you might have blocked tubes. Or your hubby could have a low sperm count. If you are a Christian, a great infertility web-site is www.hannahsprayer.org (((HUGS)))

They sell ovulation meters in the pharmacy. They aren't expensive at all. They start at around 10 dollars. It will tell you when is the peak of your ovulation so than you would know when the best time to try and conceive is. I myself have never used one but it seems like something that maybe you might want to look into.
