YES! There are ways to get an idea. The most obvious and expensive is to use ovulation predictor kits, but that can significantly run up the bill, especially if you have irregular cycles (like when coming off of depo). The other cheaper and slightly trickier (but well worth it) ways are to chart your basal body temperature, check your cervical position and check your cervical fluid. I could go into great detail on all of these methods, but it'd take awhile. I have posted a good website below to get you started. Check the links in the menu on the left under the title "Fertility Indicators." A lot of women on this board chart their temperatures at the very least. There is a great website that keeps track of all of this information for you if you decide to give it a try. It takes awhile to get used to, but is well worth it to know what your body is doing. And of course, this board is a great place to ask questions about all of these methods. The women here are very knowledgable and helpful. GL! -Anne
