I am new to this chat room. My mother and aunt both passed away from ovarian cancer and I am trying to get advice on birth control and getting my ovaries removed. I was on birth control pills for 15 years and recently got off of them. I was tired of being on hormones and am also concerned about the risk of breast cancer. I am also considering getting my ovaries taken out when I get into my later 40's. Can anyone give me any feedback on this as I would greatly appreciate any input.
