I am over weight and trying to get healthy for my husband and I to have a baby. I am currently on b6 and folic acid. Is there any other vitiams that will help with fertility and diet?

Losing weight is a dietary matter -- no supplements have really proven out well for this.  Some might help in coordination with an exercise program.  The main way to lose weight and improve health is to improve your diet and start an exercise program.  I'm also wondering why the B6 and folic acid if you're not currently pregnant?  Taking these two can interfere with B12 levels.  B6 in excess can cause neuropathy, though it's not common.  Folic acid is recommended for pregnant women or those seeking to get pregnant soon, but you're apparently waiting for you to get healthy first, so I'm assuming pregnancy is some time in the future for you.  I also don't know any supplements of the kind you're talking about that increase fertility.  If you've got the time, the best way to rapidly increase beneficial nutrients is to get a good low heat juicer and start juicing organic vegetables.  Good luck.
