In brief: Best Time,read

The highest probability of conception occurs when intercourse takes place one to two days prior to ovulation and on the day of ovulation.
Optimum semen quality, measured in terms of motility, morphology, and total sperm count, occurs when there are two to three days of ejaculatory abstinence; longer intervals are associated with lower pregnancy rates. Regular intercourse two to three times per wee.

In brief: Fairly good

The biggest obstacle is the extent of endometriosis affecting the fallopian tubes.
If your surgeon did alot of work around the "tubes", then getting an hsg (hysterosalpingogram) to assure the tubes are open would be very proactive. If you try on your own, don't go more than 6 months without further evaluation.
