WHen you ovulate shouldn't have anytime to do with getting pregnant (as long as you are able to know when you ovulate). The luteal phase is what is important. My cycles are long and irregular and I ovulate anywhere from CD20to CD32! I've gotten pregnant twice, both times on our first try and both times have been successful (well, the first one resulted in a healthy baby boy and this one I am currently 21 weeks along and doing well). My luteal phases though are consistenly around 13-14 days long, so they are long enough to sustain a pregnancy. That's the key, and having low levels of progesterone is a big reason for shorter luteal phases. I'd try temping and checking cervical mucus. That'll tell you when you ovulated and then you can see how long your temps are up and how high they get (if they aren't high enough that could indicate a problem wiht progesterone or it could also indicate the possibility of a thyroid problem). Good luck!
