Hi I think you should consult a doctor for getting pregnant. As your age is on a higher side, and you are also having endometriosis, your ovaries need to be evaluated first. Do your day 2 FSH, LH and AMH levels and a ultrasound to see for the follicles. It is quite possible that you will have to undertake IVF to get pregnant. Talk to your doctor regarding this. Hope I have answered your question.
