In brief: SOMETIMES
Women who have endometriosis will have more difficulty getting pregnant then those that do not have endometriosis.
Endometriosis will make you less fertile not sterile. So some women do get pregnant despite endometriosis. The more severe the disease the less likely pregnancy will occur on its own. If you have endometriosis try for 6 months to get pregnant and if you don't then see a fertility dr.
