No, it does not mean that children won't happen. I had endometriosis on my utero-sacral ligaments, Pouch of Douglas, bladder and peritoneum. I had it all removed 11 years ago and went on to have two children, who are now 7 and 10 years old. Endo affects everyone differently and while infertility can he a side effect, it is not certain you will become infertile.
