Hi!
Regular menstrual cycles is usually a sign of regular ovulation.  Typically if weight is going to affect fertiity it will also affect the cycles and ovulation.  Naturally it is difficult to predict how soon anyone will conceive because there are so many factors, but regular ovulation is definitely an advantage when a couple is "trying". If you have had three or more miscarriages, you might wish to consult with a fertility expert to see if any testing is indicated for "recurrent spontaneous miscarriages".  Also, ovulation predictors (and there are all sorts from cheap to expensive) can help with timing of intercourse for optimal outcome.  I typically tell my patients to have intercourse every -- to every other day during their fertille interval.  I also strongly encourage them to take a multivitamin with folic acid.
Good luck!
