I have severe endometriosis with no symptoms. I am 29 now and want to get IVF done. No blockage of tubes. FSH and Estradiol are all normal. Do you think IVF will work for me the first time?

The presence of endometriosis is documented to have a negative effect on the success of IVF.  It is difficult for me to predict if IVF will work for you the first time other than to say that at 29 you are young and this should go in your favour.
