Are there any women who are more prone to have endometriosis?

Fertility Medicine 19 years experience
Family History: Although endometriosis is not a genetic disorder, it does run in families (sister, mother, etc). Women who have chronic pain, painful periods, and painful sex are more likely to have endometriosis. Women who have a uterine anomaly are more prone to it as well.
Dr. Luis Gonzalez
Obstetrics and Gynecology 39 years experience
Family History: Genetics is important. A first degree relative with endometriosis is a high risk. Endometriosis is also related to asthma and allergic conditions. Information is available at the endometriosis foundation of america, padma lakshmi (picture) is the co founder.
