Hello doctor,

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is a really short description of your query. In an irregular cycle, it seems around 30 to 35 days better to have sex on alternate days on expected days of ovulation. It is better to have combined oral contraceptive pills for three months to regulate your cycle and then try. Have a balanced diet and BMI with exercise daily. Lots of fruits and vegetables and try to have complete check and treatment of any health issue you and husband have. Have recreational activities and avoid recreational drugs you and husband both. If the cycle is of regular 28 days, then the fertile period is from day 9 to day 13 to have a continuous sex but in an irregular prolonged cycle, have sex on alternate days on suspected ovulatory days like from day 9 to day 20 of your cycle roughly on alternate nights. Have Folic acid.


Treatment plan:

Cocp for three months if can wait otherwise have sex on alternate nights as advised.

Preventive measures:

Normal weight and BMI, Folic acid, exercise daily, diet.
