I am a 26 year old female with no serious health conditions. I have been trying to get pregnant for 9 months. I have seen my gynecologist throughout the past 9 months, thinking I had endometriosis. About 3 weeks ago, I went under laparoscopy and they found 2 indirect inguinal hernias, which were repaired at the same time. There was no trace of endometriosis or any other female problem. I know that it may take up to 12 months to get pregnant before they consider it a fertility issue but I just wondered if the hernias could have had anything to do with not getting pregnant?
