Not doing the deed but this whole catching when you're ovualting business? In layman's terms if you would!
I stopped the pill a few months ago (ditched the condoms this week) and have had irreugular cycles, a huge one about 70 days, 31 day, a 45 day then another 31. Would yout assume that my cycle is likely to be a 31 dayer? Then how many days into a 31 day cycle will I ovulate? I have looked out for the eggy CM (grim I know) which was yesterday so that would make it 17 days, would this be right? It is making my head all confuzzled! I have an app on my phone which is absolute garbage and seems to be working my AF due date at 31 days but workng out ovulation based on a 28 day cycle.
Sorry for the ramble but already I'm peed off with it!

Yep, I can confirm that TTC sucks!
It sounds like your cycles are still settling down somewhat, so you may wind up with 31 day cycles, or they may settle to something else. Assuming you do have a 31 day cycle, you should ovulate 14 days before your period is due, a normal luteal phases is 14 days, so you'd ovulate on day 17, which fits with your EWCM.
If you can, I'd try not to get too hung up about the details for a few months, just boff lots and see what happens. (Coming from a POAS addict, I know how hard that is!)

I agree with spikey. Try not to get bogged down in the details too much yet. Once you learn it you can never unlearn and never switch your brain off to it all!
For now, and I'd say for the first few months, just try to have regular sex (every 2-3 days) and enjoy yourself!

Depends how much you have sex as to how much you need to try and identify ov.
If you're at it a few times a week, chances are you'll have it covered. If you are shift workers or just a couple that have a more leisurely sex life, you might need to try an make an extra effort to have sex at the right time.
First off, the egg white cm is a really easy indicator for the best time to have sex as it is the best cm for the sperm to swim through. It is also completely free to track it!
The phone apps will build up a picture over time if you keep entering all your signs.
