An oophorectomy is the surgical removal of the ovaries. It is often performed as part of a hysterectomy, but may be carried out alone. During an oophorectomy, you’ll be anaesthetised and will not be awake throughout the surgery.
An oophorectomy is commonly performed in one of two ways:
The surgeon will make an incision in your lower abdomen in order to access your ovaries. Each ovary will be separated from the surrounding tissue as well as nerve connections and blood supplies.
Otherwise known as “keyhole surgery”, the surgeon will make a number of small incisions. A tiny camera will be inserted into one incision, which will be used to guide the surgical tools. Each ovary will be removed through one of the small incisions.
During a bilateral oophorectomy, both ovaries are removed. After a bilateral oophorectomy, you will experience the immediate and irreversible onset of menopause. This can be successfully managed with hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Your consultant will discuss treatment options with you beforehand and can assist in referring you to an HRT specialist.
If you wish to have children following an oophorectomy, it is important that you discuss this with your consultant before the procedure. For some conditions, only one ovary needs to be removed. The remaining ovary may allow you to continue having periods and conceive naturally.
If you have undergone a bilateral oophorectomy but still have a healthy uterus, you may be able to conceive with reproductive treatment. You can consult with a fertility specialist to review your options.
