Yes they can. Several of my friends are obese and have irregular periods and they became pregnant. It was hard though to tell the due date, because of the irregularity of their periods. All of their children are healthy too:)

Is it less likely to become pregnant with a very irregular period?

Yes, because if you have irregular periods than you probably do not ovulate regularly. Which if you are trying to conceive could make it very difficult to determine when you will be able to conceive, because determining ovulation is difficult. Having irregular periods also means that you are ovulating less than someone who has a period promptly every 28-30 days which does in fact decrease your chances. With that being said, getting pregnant while having irregular period is not impossible. It might take a little more planning and time, but it is quite possible!! Goodluck to all those who are TTC out there :)
