You can start charting and temping anytime. Be sure to use a basal thermometer, that is, one that records your temp to the .xx degree. You can use a regular one, but basal is more accurate. Fertility Friend is a great free charting site to use. You can record your temp, along with many other signs to help you pinpoint ovulation.
Temping alone will only allow you to confirm ovulation after it happens. Once you see a temp rise or shift that is sustained for 3 days, that usually signals ovulation occurred. Many ladies also like to use ovulation predictor kits as well. These will allow you to determine a window in which you should ovulate, before it happens.
There is a lot of info out there...and I hope that some other ladies here will chime in with some more info for you. Things like cervical mucus and position can also be good for tracking.
Hope this helps!
