After I was diagnosed as having endometriosis, I was told that I have inadequate ovulation. How common is this?

In brief: If u are struggling

With infertility I am not surprised that elements of your history may have tipped your physician.
Endometriosis however, do not cuase "inadequate" ovulation. This are two separate processes that can sometimes co-exist but are independent of each other. Ovulatory dysfunction is the most common cause of female infertility. Hope this answers ?

In brief: Common

First of all, assessing the quality of ovulation (as opposed to whether ovulation occurs) can be difficult and variable.
But endometriosis can affect the ovaries and affect the environment in which eggs grow. So your hormones production can be impacted.
