In brief: Difficult to do.
Unfortunately, preventing ovarian cancer is difficult.
Some risk factors include family history (having a genetic mutation called brca), never having children, and exposure to estrogen therapy. Thus, having children and avoiding estrogen will help decrease your risk.

In brief: You can't
But most people will say a moderate life style.
.Which doesn't help. If breast cancer or ovarian cancer runs in your family..Talk to you doctor if other screeening tests should be done.
