The short answer is yes. One of the theories about ovarian cancer (and it is JUST theoretical), is the principle of incessant ovulation: the more times a woman ovulates (i.e., has a normal menstrual cycle) in her life, the higher her risk of ovarian cancer. If a woman uses birth control pills for five years, she lowers her risk of ovarian cancer by 40-50 percent.
