LH kits are sold on line. LH (luteinizing hormone) spikes around the time of ovulation. There are also apps that help predict fertile days of the month.
Typically ovulation occurs 14 days prior to your first day of period - so if you have a 30 day cycle you ovulate on day 16. But two methods to use include the basal body temperature method or simply buying an over the counter ovulation kit. For the basal body temperature this is a good resource for you: https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/basal-body-temperature/about/pac-20393026

Get an ovulation kit from the drug store. It has detailed instructions on how to track ovulation.

Good luck,
