Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that both of you should try to get fit, because having your weight in the ideal range, or close improves fertility.
Also, give up any bad habits such as cigarette or marijuana smoking.
Regular intercourse is important.  Finally if you are trying, you should be taking a supplement with 400 mcg of folic acid.
Good luck!
Dr B
