The person in the other thread was basing her comments on her own personal experience, and that experience mirrors my own so I do agree with her. I did not ovulate until I got my lapband and lost 30kgs.
Again, this time around I had to lose 15kgs to kick my ovaries into gear.
I know this isn't the case for everyone (a friend of mine is pregnant with her 3rd and has never weighed less than 145kgs when falling pregnant and never had any issues) but I wouldn't say it is uncommon.

There are a million and one things that can influence a woman's fertility... weight is just one of them.
I fell pregnant with DD at 93kg. My BMI at that time would have been 35.5 so well into the obese category. I was with her father for all of 4 months when it happened... so obviously it didn't make pregnancy hard for me... I was even using protection at the time.
I do agree it can make falling pregnant more difficult - but it's hardly something that prevents women from falling pregnant altogether, or means that there's only a slim chance they can fall pregnant.

Every woman is different, so weight is not an issue for every woman's fertility.
All 4 of my kids have been conceived when I had a BMI of 30 or more, with no difficulty.
