Care after premenopausal risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy in high-risk women: Scoping review and international consensus recommendations


Despite the efficacy of premenopausal RRSO for reducing ovarian cancer risk and improving mortality in high-risk women, many women experience troublesome menopausal symptoms and oophorectomy may have adverse implications for long-term health.

Our panel of international experts has developed evidence-based recommendations for managing vasomotor, sleep, mood, sexual, and genitourinary symptoms and optimising bone and cardiovascular long-term health. Emerging evidence suggests that HRT reduces but does not eliminate the adverse effects of premenopausal oophorectomy. Women and clinicians considering RRSO should be aware of these risks and clinical care should focus on available safe options for symptom management and optimisation of long-term health.
