I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 15 and have taken painkillers and birth control ever since. Should I be worried about infertility?

In brief: Endometriosus

Endometriosis can be a cause of infertility.
If you are trying to get pregnant seek assistance from the gyn/ob or fertility md.

In brief: Control the endo

The birth control pills are hopefully controlling your pain and the growth of the endometriosis.
The fewer surgeries you have the better. If you have trouble getting pregnant when you are ready, then you might talk with your doctor about a laparoscopy, either traditional or robotic. You may not have any trouble getting pregnant.
