Trying to conceive after endometriosis

I have been on the pill for over 15 years for the treatment of endometriosis with no period. My husband and I started trying to conceive about 8 months ago, and I went off the pill at that time. My periods regulated for several months, but the past few months, my cycles have been getting progressively longer. It's been 50+ days since I've had a period, with several negative pregnancy tests. My doctor gave me a progesterone shot 5 days ago and still no period. My hormone levels were tested and came back normal. What could be going on?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Endometriosis is a negative factor for you and you need to be investigated thoroughly.I suggest you to meet an infertility specialist for an opinion.A simple hormonal testing is not enough and you might need other form of assistance to get pregnant.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
