HI! Welcome!

Use the calenders to get a general idea of when you should expect your Aunt Flo. The get a Basal Body Thermometer to measure your temp every morning as well as some Ovalaution prediction kits. These are great tools and have worked for alot of ladies here. I also recommend reading up on cervical mucas and how it can help predict ovalution.

I highly recommend using the old-fashioned method - the basal body thermometer and charting your own fertility signs. There is a fantastic book called Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. You will learn so much about your body that you will absolutely know when you are ovulating each month (using temps, cervical position and cervical mucus as indicators). Most libraries have it, but it's well worth buying. I was 37 when I started TTC, and I sucessfully conceived three times (one miscarriage and two kids) using these methods, despite my advanced age.
