Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that you can get ovulation predictors and use them this cycle to see if you are going to ovulate this time around.  The first day of your period is considered to be the first day of your cycle--wait until cycle day 11 and then start using the opks as directed (they are just like home pregnancy tests--very easy).  When the opk is positive your ovulation should occur within 24-48 hours later.
Good luck!
