In brief: Endometriomas

Yes. Cysts of endometriosis in the ovaries are called endometriomas, which may cause pain, infertility, both or neither. If you are having difficult getting pregnant and/or you have very painful periods then laparoscopic surgery to remove the cyst(s) and any other endometriosis in your pelvis is usually helpful.

In brief: Probably

If the ovaries are ivolved with endometriosis such that it can be seen on ultrasound, this typcially suggests signficiant disease elsewhere.
If there is severe endometriosis, this definietly affects fertililty.
