Endometriosis may cause infertility
Approximately 30 to 40 percent of women with endometriosis are infertile, according to the Cleveland Clinic. However, many women with endometriosis can, and do, successfully get pregnant and have children. Other health conditions, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, can affect a woman’s ability to get pregnant, too. If you are under 35 and have been trying to get pregnant for one year or more, you should talk to your doctor.
