How Do I Reduce My Risk For Ovarian Cancer?

While there is no way that you can prevent ovarian cancer, there are habits and lifestyle choices you can choose to reduce your risk.

  • Using birth control - women who has used birth control for over 5 years have about a 50% lower risk of developing ovarian cancer

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a well-balanced diet, a healthy weight, and being physically active

  • Abstaining from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) after menopause

It is imperative that you speak with your doctor, review your medical history, and determine if you should receive more frequent exams/screenings.
