In brief: Yes!

If symptoms include severe cramping, pelvic piain, nausea, and incapacitation monthly.
Please see a gyn md who may recommend laparoscopy to confirm the presence of endometriosis. The youngest patient thusfar that I have seen with the diagnosis was symptomatic at 14 and diagnosed and treated at 15 via laparoscopy.

In brief: Yes

Endometriosis can occur at any age but it is most often found in females after they started having periods.
