The article reports on the risk of premenopausal breast cancer associated with the use of oral pills before the first pregnancy. Studies showed that there is a 52% risk of premenopausal breast cancer on women who used pills for four years. Breast physician and epidemiologist Dr. Nehmat Houssami stated that further research should be done regarding the use of oral contraceptives before first pregnancy because younger women are using the oral contraceptive pills for longer periods.
