Still possible: But you should lose, weight first. Morbid obesity bu itself is sometimes associated with amenorrhea.

Questionable: You did not say how tall you are and this is how we calculate bmi or body mass index. Women with a bmi over 35 have increased risk of pregnancy complications. If you are not having periods then your body is preventing you from getting pregnant. Something is wrong and i would seek an answer. Getting fit for pregnancy will be beneficial for you and your baby.
