Effect of oophorectomy on younger women
Florida Atlantic University’s department of Exercise Science & Health Promotion is currently studying the effect of oophorectomy in younger women. Many breast and/or ovarian cancer patients have a bilateral oophorectomy as a result of cancer treatments and more and more “previvors” are also electing to have a bilateral oophorectomy to reduce their risk of disease. But no one really knows how younger organs and muscles are affected by early menopause. FAU researchers are looking at both cardiovascular and metabolic responses to help develop exercise and nutrition plans targeted to these empowered women who care about their health and longevity.
