Women who experience infertility, particularly primary fertility problems, have been found to be at an increased risk of ovarian and uterine cancer compared to those that do not. Primary infertility refers to women who have never conceived, whereas women with secondary infertility have fallen pregnant at least once. Increased risk of developing cancer is also associated with pelvic inflammatory disease and corresponding scarring of the fallopian tubes.
