According to a new study, the risk for ovarian cancer is slashed by more than 30 percent with an IUD. The Doctors share that ovarian cancer is the 5th leading cause of death for women in America, and note it can often be hard to treat and not detected early.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains there are type types of IUDs, one which uses the hormone progesterone, and has antiestrogenic activity and may decrease the risk of ovarian cancer. The other type is a copper IUD, which may cause low-grade inflammation in the reproductive system, and may cause immune cells to fight off pre-cancerous cells.
Dr. Nita suggests that more women should discuss their birth control options with their provider and talk about the risk and benefits of possibly using an IUD.
