  • You need to confirm that you are indeed ovulating. You can do this 1 of 2 ways. You can buy the clear blue easy ovulation predictor strips which give you a smiley face when you are ovulating OR go to the doctor and have them test you. *Thinking* that you ovulate bc of pain and discharge isn't reliable enough to confirm your ovulation. Also, your periods are super weird, which will make getting pregnant very hard. I am 31 weeks pregnant with my first. The only way I was able to get pregnant was with 4 cycles of clomid, the clear blue easy ovulation strips, artificial insemination, and progesterone suppositories. I am 33 years old, and *thought* I ovulated bc I had discharge but my periods were all weird and the docs confirmed I was not ovulating on my own. The fact that you ovulate so close to your period means you are progesterone deficient. This will make getting pregnant VERY hard for you. I was not able to get pregnant without progesterone suppositories. My advice: Go to the doctor. I think you will need some testing and some help getting pregnant.
