What are your chances of getting pregnant if you have endometriosis?

A year ago I had laparoscopy to remove a dermoid cyst and the gynecologist also said the found and removed mild endometrios. My husband and I have been trying to conceive since the surgery and we've been unsuccessful. I am starting to fear that I'm infertile and will not be able to conceive without the help of fertility treatments. I'll be 30 years old next year and I'm constantly worried that my time is running out.
