Ovarian Cancer Prevention
There is no known way to prevent ovarian cancer. But these things may lower your chance of getting ovarian cancer—
- Having used birth control pills for more than five years.
- Having had a tubal ligation (getting your tubes tied), both ovaries removed, or a hysterectomy (an operation in which the uterus, and sometimes the cervix, is removed).
- Having given birth.
