abstract

  • Vaginal symptoms are bothersome to women who have undergone RRSO, but overall health and psychological outcomes are not impaired. Although coital symptoms may not be a direct consequence of RRSO, they are the most important predictors of satisfaction. A proportion of women continue to report worries about ovarian cancer after surgery, and these women are at risk for psychological distress.
