Unfortunately, there is no proven method to prevent ovarian cancer. However, there are certain factors that may possibly reduce the risk. Using oral contraceptives, especially for a longer period of time, has been associated with ovary health. Previous pregnancy and a history of breast-feeding may also lower a woman’s chances of developing ovarian cancer.
It is very important to make yearly appointments with your physician or a gynecologist in order to avoid advanced-stage ovarian cancer. Pay attention to your body, and if you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, do not hesitate to have them checked.
