Trying to conceive

Hey ladies, I'm new here and looking for some advice and support as many of my friends don't understand my journey and what I am going through...
In April this year I was diagnosed with Endo and had a laposcopy, I have had pains for as long as I can remember and it took a long time to get diagnosed. I am now facing the effects of endo (fatigue, pain, pelvic inflammation, reduced mobility etc)
As soon as I heard the words my first thought was "I need to start trying soon, I don't want the choice taken from me" I am very scared that I will have difficulty conceiving. I feel that my body has settled down from the surgery now and my parter (28) is ready to start trying, but I keep becoming nervous/anxious about it actually happening. Things like my job, money, living arrangements all come flooding to my mind and freak me out.
I know how silly this may sound and most people might say that I'm not ready but I do feel a natural urge, i'm just not sure if these feelings and nerves are normal?
Am I wise to think that it's best to start trying now, before theres a possibility I may become infertile or need IVF. I am also thinking about my energy as a younger lady and my ability to bend down and be active with my child which could be effected when my endo comes back (which is undoubtedly will)
I feel like i'm stuck between a rock and a hard place so any words of encouragement, advice or personal experiences would be a big help.
Thank you xx

don't worry bubblebex, i had endo before and i was cured by a tcm totally, now my son is already 3 years old,hope it can help you too. My doctor told me Although the exact cause of endometriosis is not certain, several possible explanations include:Retrograde menstruation. Embryonic cell growth.Surgical scar implantation.Endometrial cells transport.Immune system disorder.
Treatment for endometriosis is usually with medications or surgery. The approach you and your doctor choose will depend on the severity of your signs and symptoms and whether you hope to become pregnant.Generally, doctors recommend trying conservative treatment approaches first, opting for surgery as a last resort.
Pain medications,such as the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen (Aleve, others), to help ease painful menstrual cramps. A type of tcm called pill of fu yan can be chosen as a better treatment with no drug resistance or side effect. Hormone therapies include Hormonal contraceptives. Hormonal contraceptives. Hormonal contraceptives. Hormonal contraceptives. can be taken.
