Endometriosis: Endometriosis is often associated with infertility. Weight gain contributes to menstrual irregularity. You should be treated by a specialist that can remove endometriosis by laparoscopic surgery. The removal of this disease may improve your future fertility.

Specialist: Yes, is is very important to see a specialist to evaluate everything related to endometriosis and infertility: the tubes, ovaries, and hormones so you can get a realistic estimate of what is going on. You don't want to let infertility set in too long when endometriosis is present, especially when your periods are changing. That can also be a sign of a decline in the number of eggs you have.
