In brief: Genetic

Some family information is important.
You want to know about any genetic.Disorders. You would want to know about any family history of mental retardation. Also you want to know about any infertility or anyone else having recurrent miscarriages. And it is important to know at what age your mother went through menopause. That information may not be useful but it may be important.
