No, don't go back onto the pill. See your gynae. He might be able to recommend Clomid to assist in ovulation.

You need to have a regular cycle in order to have regular ovulation - without ovulating you cannot fall pregnant. You will need to see your doc so that he can help you get your periods sorted out.
Once you are having a regular normal period, then you can test to see when you ovulate - remember that it it can take up to a year to fall pregnant once your cycle is regular.
