Is removal of ovaries before natural menopause associated with changes to concentration and memory?

About the study

We are recruiting women across Australia who are under the age of 45 and are at high risk for ovarian cancer and planning a bilateral salpingo-oopherectamy (BSO) within the next 12 months, as well as women under the age of 45 who have undergone BSO in the past 12 months. 

This project is conducted via videoconferencing (all online) and involves interviews to assess mood and cognition.
