In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
