Any over 40 moms get pregnant easier after surgery after trying month or years pre-op?

I'm very curious and hopeful you get some responses to this post. I'm 41 and have 3 boys, 15, 11 and 10 and always wanted a fourth. But being so heavy I just couldn't imagine it. I'm only 3 weeks post op so even if I want to try I have to wait! I will say that my sister had RNY 7 years ago and she has been a surrogate twice since her surgery, at 39 and 42 years.

Thanks for the tread!

I have been MO my entire life, I never had a regular period, ever.  To get pregnant I did change my diet and add exercise plus used clomid and was able to get pregnant.  Post op-at almost 40, when I went of the birth control I got pregnant immediately, miscarried and got pregnant immediately again, so obviously I am MUCH more fertile!  I have a 4 month old and am breastfeeding so I don't know if my periods are totally regular now but I assume they will be.
