    The answer depends on your current age:

    If you are below the age of 35, a period of 6 months of timed intercourse is okay; so attempting to conceive naturally is fine as long as you are ovulating and that intercourse is timed appropriately. Afterwards you can have a combination treatment of ovulation induction (a medication called clomiphene) and IUI. That has a good success rate. IUI is definitely beneficial. 

    If you are above the age of 35, the best time to conceive is in the first 6 months after treatment of the endometriosis. You may want to start directly on ovulation induction and IUI. Alternatively you could move to IVF as that would have the highest success rate. I would suggest 3 cycles of ovulation induction and IUI followed by IVF.
