Pregnancy and breastfeeding are linked to a lower risk of ovarian cancer. This comes back to how many times you ovulate in your lifetime. “When you’re pregnant, you don’t ovulate,” says Dr. Breastfeeding. Some studies suggest that women who breastfeed for a year or more may have a modestly reduced risk of ovarian cancer.

Other forms of birth control such as tubal ligation (having fallopian tubes tied) and short use of IUDs (intrauterine devices) have also. Research has shown that premenopausal women who have BRCA gene mutations and have had their ovaries removed reduce their risk of breast cancer as well as their risk of ovarian cancer. The risk of ovarian cancer is reduced by 85% to 95%, and the risk of breast cancer cut by 50% or more. Have close family members (such as your mother, sister, aunt, or grandmother) on either your mother’s or your father’s side, who have had ovarian cancer.
Have a genetic mutation (abnormality) called BRCA1 or BRCA2, or one associated with Lynch syndrome.
