Oophorectomy also referred to as ovariectomy, is a surgical procedure to remove one or both of a woman’s ovaries – the almond-shaped organs located on each side of the uterus that produces ovum (egg cells). It is often performed to prevent or treat certain medical conditions, such as ovarian torsion, endometriosis, non-cancerous ovarian tumor, and ovarian cancer.
You may be able to return to your normal routine and go back to work within 2 to 3 weeks after oophorectomy with laparoscopy. If you undergo laparotomy, you may need six weeks until you can resume your full normal activities.
Oophorectomy has a high success rate of 97.5%. However, there are some side effects, complications, and risks you need to be aware of before the procedure, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness (menopause symptoms), memory problems, decreased sex drive, heart disease, depression, anxiety, and osteoporosis.
