- Never having had a child.
- Having a menstrual period of longer than seven days.
- Having a menstrual cycle of fewer than 27 days.
- Having a close family member who has had endometriosis.
- Having a health condition affecting the normal flow of menstrual blood.
- Having had an infection that damaged cells in the pelvis.
