I don't think it's possible to ovulate without having ANY eggwhite mucus, but it is possible to have such a tiny amount (say, lasting a few minutes rather than a few days) that you miss it completely. Intercourse would have to be timed JUST RIGHT to get pg on a month like that, as the eggwhite mucus is what keeps the sperm alive between ejaculation and ovulation.
I was actually thinking more along the lines of "maybe you got pg a few months ago and you didn't ovulate because your'e already pregnant." But if you've been having HEAVY periods (not just lots of spotting but no real flow) then that's not too likely.
Obviously, something is going on with your hormones. Either you're having a very atypical pg, or your hormonal system is unbalanced and most likely causing infertility. Either way, it sounds like a visit to a HCP is in order. I'd start with a conventional medical provider for lab tests and diagnosis, then consider alternative therapies for treatment (in place of or alongside conventional treatment, depending on what the dr suggests).
