Ovarian cancer – earlier pregnancy may be
Women who delay their pregnancy to mid-30s have lower risk of getting ovarian cancer compare to those women who become pregnant before that, a new study findings.
In this study, researchers gather information from about 1,700 women who are living in Los Angeles suffering from ovarian cancer, and nearly 2,380 women who are normal and living in the same area. The researchers analyzed in this study that each five years increase in woman’s age for pregnancy reduces the risk of ovarian cancer to 16 percent. The analyzed information of women shows that women had 46 percent lower risk of ovarian cancer if their first child birth was at age 35 or later compared to women who gave birth to first child when they were younger than 20. In this study, researchers also took into account many other things which can affect the risk rate of ovarian cancer like the total number of babies.
According to previous studies, women who become pregnant more times are at lower risk of ovarian cancer compared to other women. A normal woman releases eggs in ovary each month. Scientists say that regular ovulation increases the risk of ovarian cancer. Since during pregnancy woman does not ovulate, so thus risk rate of ovarian cancer reduces to manifolds.
