In brief: YES!
Endometriosis affects many aspects of fertility.
In many women endometriosis causes ovarian cysts, causes damage to fallopian tubes, causes inflammation of the uterus, and may decrease the ability of the sperm to get inside the egg (fertilization). Even with fertility treatments women with endometriosis have lower pregnancy rates so it is something to see a fertility specialist about sooner.
