    Default Ovulation dates and irregular periods

    Wondering if anyone can offer wisdom with this.

    DH and I want to sway a boy with timing {already doing diet}, and what I've read says that an anti-Shettles is the best way, by ramming-like-bull before ovulation and abstaining after ovulation.

    Thing is, I can't pin down my cycle length or ovulation dates because my periods are a bit out of sorts.
    Here's my calender from Jan to now:

    Jan: 7th-14th
    Feb: 8th-11th
    March: 7th-11th
    April: None {tested for pregnancy, negative}
    May: 7th-10th
    June: Hasn't started yet.

    I'm on the Implanon implant, which is being removed this week. We timed it so I'd have finished my period by the time the implant was removed, but I'm not even having any signs of impending period!

    Can anyone tell my what my cycle length might be, and what would be the best dates to DTD for a boy?

    For a boy you should BD right on ovulation, a girl is 1-3 days before.

    So are the dates you gave your period? It all depends on your luteal phase. Mine is 15 most are 13-16. So you count back say 14 days from the first day of your period and that is your o day.

    Have you considered using OPK's? Also have you thought about herbs to level out your cycles? I had a loss in nov last year which sent my cycles crazy for months. I went from 14 day ovulation to 21/22. I was taking vitex for 10 days and this month o'ed on day 15
