Hormonal contraception and cancer.
Br J Hosp Med. 1986 Jan; 35(1):25-9.BJ

Abstract

The natural menstrual cycle can influence the development of some cancers. Combined oral contraceptives, which replace normal hormonal fluctuations with steadier levels of artificial sex hormones, appear to protect against cancers of the endometrium and ovary, but their effect on carcinomas of the breast and cervix remains uncertain.
