Yes: The normal interval between cycles are 21-35dys. Your cycle interval may change from time to time and that's ok as long as it is within a normal range. Weight gain can cause hormonal imbalance, hence preventing ovulation. However, it does not mean you cannot get pregnant. Buy ovulation predictor kits to confirm you are ovulating. You must also eat healthy and exercise prior to conceiving.
