In brief: There are several

If you're overweight, try hard to lose some weight.
Even a 10% decrease in body weight can potentially significantly improve fertility. Take folic acid. A fertility doctor can monitor you for ovulation to help best time conception. Fertility testing (you and your partner) can assure all else is ok (like having your tubes checked). Consider a board certified re for your highest odds of success.

In brief: Wt loss, evaluation

- losing weight if overweight improves chances of conceiving, decreases risk of miscarriage, decreases risk of developing maternal complications such as preeclampsia and gestational diabetes - seek infertility evaluation to confirm that fallopian tube(s) are patent and that ovulation is occuring - depending on how long you've been ttc, may start infertility treatment.
