Trying to conceive

I have been off the pill for about 6 months now and straight away had a normal period. Then this month I have experienced a period that was not norma for me and now I don't know how to figure out when I will ovulate!
Basically I started heavy bleeding and terrible cramps on the 30th of Jan for 2 days. Then the bleeding stopped completely but the painful cramping continued and I also had nausea and diarrea. Then on the 9th (at night) I started to bleed again and I am still bleeding now. It has all been more browny blood than red. Sorry about the TMI!
Just want to know how I will figure out when I will ovulate.. Thanks!

Hi- I came off pill just over 6 months ago. 1st period was after 20 days- then not another until 45 days after. then every 26/27/28 days.
I wasn't sure if i was ovulating, hust having sex every other day.
I bought some test strips for both ovulation and pregnancy online- Amazon. Although i did not know if they were accurate. 2 months ago- i bought the clear blu digitla ovulation- i would definatly reccomend- i saw a post about it- and bought the 20 pack- i got them on offer at boots- or try online to make it cheaper.
Past two months i have used them and got the little smily face- it is very clear. This month i used a cheap one the same day as i got the smily face and it did show positive V faintly. I wish i had gone for the digital ones sooner.
I was on the pill for around 11 yrs and then during this time had to change to cerezette for about 3-4 yrs but this stopped periods all together. Before cerezette periods was regular as clock work- i would be able to tell to the exact minute when i was coming on and usually for about 7-10 days and very heavy. These days it started as 2 days now between 2-4 days.
I would definatly suggest you get the digital ovulation- the doctor recomended charting temperature- but i CBA to do that and that the discharge is like white and sticky (apparantly!- TMI) at the time you ovulate. Some websites predict periods and ovulation- and this has been fairly accurate for me too, but you need regular periods, and mine are still a little weird so best advice is the dig ovulation kits.
Best of luck- hope it helps
