Your weight affects your hormones, which in turn affects whether or not you ovulate, which then determines whether or not you will have a period. I hope that all made sense. It is good that you are trying to lose weight and congrats on the 10 pounds lost so far! The more you lose weight, the more likely it will be for your body to be able to regulate your hormones again and get back to a natural menstrual cycle vs a forced menstrual cycle. It's also healthier and safer for you and future baby if you are at a healthy weight when you begin pregnancy. I would never suggest that you get pregnant prior to getting out of the obesity range. When are you and your fiance getting married?

i think having an extra weight maybe would have some impact on getting pregnant, but all i am seeing a lot of womans with an extra pounds are pregnant, my dr told me i have to lose 10 pound to get pregnant , i did not and i got pregnant . if i were u i would try to lose some of it but look for another dr , best of luck to u , sending u a lot of baby dust :)
