Falling Pregnant

I am now 40 and for the past two years I have been trying to fall pregnant. I used to suffer from endometriosis and I’m not sure if that’s the cause however my periods are normal so I’m not sure what to do now. Please help!

Infertility or difficulty to fall pregnant is commonly associated with Endometrioses. As Endometriosis causes infertility in different ways, you should have an appropriate investigation which would include an assessment of ovulation and the determining of the severity of the endometrioses.   My Suggestion will be to consult you Gynaecologist.  There are so many success stories of woman whom had fall pregnant with endometrioses. Don’t give up but  get provisional help.
