The only way to confirm ovulation for sure is by tracking your basal body temperature (bbt) or by ultrasound. If you track your bbt, it will go up after ovulation and confirm that you did indeed ovulate. It is possibly to have a period without ovulating though. Those anovulatory cycles will usually be a little longer, but not necessarily. Isn't ttc such a wonderful thing?!?!? It's a whole bunch of hurry up and wait, and "maybe but maybe not".
If you haven't been tracking your bbt, but would like to start, I suggest you check out www.fertilityfriend.com. They have online tracking software that you can use with a free membership and also have an "online course" so you can learn more about tracking and monitoring your fertility signs. There is also a paid membership that allows access to message boards and a chat room. (If you want to pay, check out their facebook page for discounted membership prices.)
