In brief: Normal
The fact that you are missing an ovary should not preclude you from conceiving.
Your remaining ovary will ovulate each month to compensate. Take your multivitamins as you normally would.

If you do have problems conceiving with endometriosis see gyn you may be given Lupron for suppression

In brief: IVF
By far the highest chance of conceiving is with in vitro fertilization.
With severe endometriosis, the eggs age quicker than a woman's actual age and often do not allow the sperm inside as well (fertilization). Endometriosis also affects the fallopian tubes. So while you may have different options available based on your individual evaluation, with significant endometriosis ivf is often needed.
