Hello, I have an irregular cycle of 2-3 days since i began taking birth control pills last january. I stopped already, but my cycle remained irregular. In one month i got it during the second to the last week and then the following month i got it the second week. Both lasted 2-3 days. My question is, how do i know which days i am fertile and which days I am not? Thank you so much!

It is the number of days from the first day of your cycle this month to the first day of your cycle next month.

Hi igr2492,

It really depends on the length of your cycle-- not by how many days you're bleeding but by how many days between the first day of your period until the first day of your next period. Normally, if you have a 28 day cycle, ovulation would occur on or around day 14 after the first day of your period. So, if you were to get your period on April 1st, ovulation would be at it's peak on the week of April 14.

Hope this helps!
