Hello Neetu
Thank you for your query and for your detailed history.
Firstly, your chances of natural conception are quite less.
You have already had surgery for endometriosis, and HSG is not always reliable.
Your tubes could have suffered a damage, which is best confirmed by a diagnostic laparoscopy.
ALso , endometriosis surgery affects the ovaries, leading to decreased ovarian reserve.
Age 38 also causes decreased efficiency of ovaries to produce eggs.
This is reflected in both your AMH, which is very low, and your AFC, which is low too.
With these values, it would be foolish to wait for natural conception.
ALso, your husband's semen analysis needs to be done.
YOu have two options - either straightaway go for IVF ( in vitro fertilization ) or go for a diagnostic laparoscopy and maximum 1 -2 more cycles of IUI if findings are normal, and then IVF.
Please consult a leading Infertility specialist in Delhi
take care.
