As a starting point I would recommend that you begin by using some sort of home ovulation monitoring kits such as the urine testing kit called CLEARPLAN. Instructions to be on package insert.
It is a relatively simple test. If you have a regular cycle, ie 28-day cycle, testing starts on day 10. Ovulation should occur round about day 14. The detection strips would become positive on day 12 of your cycle or approximately 40hrs before ovulation occurs.
Should you not be ovulating, I would recommend that you use some sort of ovulation induction. Clomid is a good drug to start with. It may also be valuable to have your partner tested at this point in time to determine whether his sperm analysis is borderline or sub-optimal- in which case a simple insemination(IUI) could be attempted. However, serious sperm abnormalities may require stronger intervention measures.
