THE FACTS > FAMILY HISTORY

Heredity can play a big role in anticipating possible problems with your fertility and reproductive health. If your mother or sisters suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS or Syndrome O), endometriosis, or other problems, you are more likely to also have these same issues. If your mother entered menopause earlier than age 40, you have an increased chance of premature menopause. You could also experience problems with reproductive health due to treatments your mother underwent while pregnant with you (DES, for example).

What to do?
Start a conversation with your mother and other family members about overall health histories and fertility histories, in particular. Share complete family histories with your doctors when expressing concerns about your fertility or discussing your future options.
