BMI and wanting treatment

Hi Brian, I am currently 30 years old and have been trying for a baby for 6 years. I currently have a bmi of 36.5 and have lost 1 st 2 lbs so far. I desperatley want to get the ball rolling and have a fertility MOT and start treatment. I have been saving up and wanted to know if I managed to get my BMI under 35 would you review my case? Thanks, Mrs B
