Endometriosis
4 week ago I had labroscopy &  surgeon suspected that I had endometriosis he made the tests and it was true I have it. I went to a gynae &  he is treating me with depo prevera 300mg for the first time, then 150mg every 3 months for 9 months I''m going for my second shot in Nov. He said that I must try for a baby after the treatment and we are not ready to have a second child, is there any other option.

Endometriosis can cause problems with fertility, so your best chance of a pregnancy would be after the treatment is complete. If you wait longer, you may struggle to conceive.
