At the time of hysterectomy for benign disease, the overall health benefits of preserving ovarian function in a large population of women have not been established.

Study summary:

We are conducting a prospective, observational study of 32,175 women participants of the Nurse's Health Study who had a hysterectomy with or without removal of both ovaries. We are evaluating mortality and morbidity due to the following conditions: coronary heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, other cancer, hip fracture and death from all causes.


Inclusion Criteria: - Women who had hysterectomies were classified into simple hysterectomy or hysterectomy with both ovaries removed. Exclusion Criteria: - Evidence of cancer, coronary heart disease (MI or Angina Pectoris), stroke, or hip fracture before entering the study were excluded. Cancer as an indication for hysterectomy also excluded. - Women reporting unilateral oophorectomy, unknown oophorectomy status, unknown age of hysterectomy, or those who had oophorectomy before hysterectomy were excluded.
