Can a doctor tell if you are fertile?
I am a 22 yr old female and lately every time I see a child or baby, I get anxious and afraid that I'll never have kids. This is because I have had very painful periods in the past (now they are better due to continuous birthcontrol). I think there is a good chance I could have endometriosis but I never had a lap done. My periods would be extremely heavy and for at least 3 days I wouldn't be able to leave the house being sick, throwing up, etc. And I've even ended up in the ER. I am afraid I'll never have children sometimes.
I am wondering is there a way a doctor/specialist (what kind?) can tell if a woman is fertile and she has a good chance of getting pregnant or if she is infertile? How can they tell and what kind of doctor is this?
I would really like to know because if I do in fact have endometriosis, I need to be thinking of a child in the near future.
