SEVERE PAIN WITH YOUR PERIODS? YOU MIGHT HAVE ENDOMETRIOSIS

Risk Factors

A woman who has a mother or sister with endometriosis is much more likely to develop endometriosis than other women. You are also more likely to have endometriosis if you:

  • Started your period at a young age
  • Never had children
  • Have frequent periods or ones that last 7 or more days
  • Have a closed or otherwise blocked hymen (imperforate hymen, congenital aplasia), which blocks the flow of menstrual blood out of your body during menstruation (also called Mayer-Rokitansky-Kster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome)
  • Have other uterine abnormalities such as a double uterus, septate uterus, or bicornuate uterus
  • Have fibroids
