Hello dear,

In my opinion you need not go for a ovary removal at such young age. Such instant manopause has lot of side effects.

There are many medical therapies available. Hormonal treatment is very successful. If you havn't tried that then ask your doctor to try that first.

If you want surgical treatment, ask your doctor for selective removal of cyst from the ovary. During laproscopy, we see the ovary and decide the surgery according to the disease found there. I have seen that most patients benefit with laproscopic treatment.

Hysterectomy with oophorectomy (removal of ovaries) should be the last resort.

Hope I have answered your query.
Dr. Juhi.
