Patient discussion about daughter

Q. Will my daughter have endometriosis also? I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 15. Now, 15 years and many efforts later I finally have an adorable baby girl. Because I had such a bad experience with endometriosis, I'm a little worried- will she have endometriosis too? Is it genetic? Can I do something to prevent it?
