Not everyone who goes to bed with a sound body wakes up next morning with the same. Some fall sick for once and never recover. It is one word to blame- Cancer. With its poisonous tentacles, cancer can occur in any part of the body and turn the world upside down. The most common types of cancer includes lung cancer, breast cancer, brain cancer, skin cancer and bone cancer or leukemia. Another such cancer is ovarian cancer. Previously it was believed that ovarian cancer began in the ovaries but according to a recent study it is shown that ovarian cancer may start in the distal end of the fallopian tubes in the uterus itself.

Another study reveals that there has always been a positive connection between the reduced risk of ovarian cancer and birth control pills and it is recently discovered in new formulations of contraceptive pills. Scientists state that the protective effect of the newly manufactured pills that contain less dose of progestogens and estrogens may prevent women from ovarian cancer.

Current Study Findings reaffirm Protective Benefits of Newer Pills

Women were divided into three categories in the study conducted: those women who had taken contraceptive pills for more than a year, those who currently use contraceptive pills, and those who never used them. After considering various factors such as the woman’s age and other variables, scientists concluded that the number of ovarian cancer cases were impressively lower in women who used birth control pills containing progestogen and estrogen at some point. It was also found that ovarian cancer was most prevalent among women who never had any contraceptive pills in their entire lifetime.

It is hard to detect ovarian cancer until it spreads fatally. Therefore it is advised that patients who are undergoing counselling with birth control options should consider the consumption of birth control; pills in order to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer in future years.
