hi - i have pcos and do not ovulate regularily. however now i am on medication and i am now ovulating. i have always had irregular periods but this year (due to weight loss - i am classed as obese) i have had regular periods and i am starting to get a usual cycle of 30-36 days (ovulating about cycle day 15-20)
i would recommend charting your body temperature first thing in the morning from the end of your period and look for an increase in temperature until you suspect you have ovulated. i would also do opk's (ovulation prediction kits) daily from this day onward also.
you would need to see a doctor and undergo special blood tests to check for a lh surge to see if you are ovulating for sure or not. usually opk's are quite acurate but they can give false readings due to evaporation and other things.  
ovulation prediction kits (opk's) and pregnancy tests (hpt) are not the same thing although they are both important when trying to conceive!
hope ive helped you - feel free to ask more questions and ill help if i can
all the best  lorri xx

depending on where you are there is different internet sites. i am in australia and i buy mine from lullabyconceptions.com.au
ive also purchased them at supermarkets and pharmacies. the internet seems to provide more options and better pricing as they can be expensive.
id suggest googling it and seeing what sites come up in your country.
