Gynecologic Cancer

The Best Cancer Protection Strategy You Are Missing

Oral Contraceptive pills are significant protection against ever having ovarian cancer.

Specifically they reduce all types of ovarian cancer, and they even reduce your risk of having ovarian surgery for ovarian cysts that are suspected to be cancerous or possibly precancerous.

Oral Contraceptives do offer protection against the number 1 gynecologic cancer: uterine cancer. This can be a very effective strategy for women who are at high risk of uterine cancer as well.

We know these protections are also for women who carry breast cancer risk genes.

Oral contraceptive pill use also helps prevent colorectal cancer.
