Fallopian Tube Removal as a Method of Ovarian Cancer Prevention: A Descriptive Study
Patients Salpingectomy as a Method of Ovarian Cancer Prevention: A Descriptive Study

The purpose of this study is to better understand why women choose to have their fallopian tubes removed as a method for ovarian cancer prevention. This will be done through a paper questionnaire and phone interviews. The investigators hope to gain information that will allow us to better counsel women about ovarian cancer prevention.

Women will be found eligible for this study after an eligibility questionnaire given over the phone. If one is found eligible, she will be sent a consent and paper survey to fill out and send back to the research coordinator. Once that is completed, she will be given a phone interview in order answer additional questions of interest. Lastly, the study participant will be contacted once a year over the phone to obtain follow-up information.
