What is the importance of removing or conserving the ovaries?

0

The physiological functions of the female body are maintained by the estrogen (hormone generated by woman’s body which is typically essential for normal female sexual development and for the healthy functioning of the reproductive system) secreted by the ovary. Removing the ovary before menopause therefore deprives the woman of this hormone leading to early menopausal changes. Therefore lest there is a strong reason to remove the ovaries (like suspicious pathology, strong family history of an ovarian or a breast cancer, cysts, tumors) they should be conserved as far as possible.
