Seeing your complaints I assume that you find difficulty falling asleep during night and so you sleep during day. You seem to have a sleep disorder where in your circadian rhythm is disturbed. If you wish to reset it and start sleeping normally at night, you can to gradually reschedule your sleep patterns and habits and also take some medicines. 1) avoid sleeping during the day 2) have a light dinner at night with fruits 3) avoid watching tv, playing games on mobiles at night to get to sleep, instead read a boring newspaper 4) do not exercise in evening, shift your exercise in morning hours get back to me for medicines.

This method is called safe period method which practically is unsafe if couple wants to avoid pregnancy for sure. Pregnancy can occur around ovulation day so depending on interval between two periods calculations can be done, I am not sure from your question what is interval between cycles. If it is 30 days then days 1 to 12 and 19-30 are considered as safe.
