Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you have endometriosis and have been trying to get pregnant for last 4 years, then you need to consult an infertility specialist. If there are endometriotic patches in your ovary or uterus, they will have to be removed surgically.

Often post surgery most women conceive. Also if there are any other problems, then at an infertility clinic, they will be caught and treated. Hope this helps. Take care!
