During pregnancy, breast cells grow rapidly. In an analysis limited to women with two or more parities, and after adjustment for the effects of ages at interim births, the risk of breast cancer increased by about 13 percent for each five-year increment in age at first birth (odds ratio 1.13 [1.08-1.19]).

Results: There was no significant difference in the mean age at first full-term birth among the BRCA1 (24.9 vs. 25.2; P = 0.10) or BRCA2 mutation carriers (26.5 vs. 26.6 years; P = 0.80). Estimating the risk of breast cancer in relation to the interval since last term pregnancy. Breast cancer isn’t common in women under 40. Results from epidemiologic studies on age at last birth (ALB) and the risk of developing breast cancer were inconsistent.
