    Primary Objective:

    • To compare the non-inferiority of bilateral salpingectomy (BLS) with delayed oophorectomy to bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer among women with deleterious BRCA1 germ-line mutations.

    Secondary Objectives:

    • To prospectively assess estrogen deprivation symptoms in BLS patients as measured by the FACTES sub-scale compared to women in the BSO arm.
    • To determine if health-related QOL (FACT) is negatively impacted by menopausal symptoms (menopausal symptom checklist-MSCL), sexual dysfunction (FSFI), and cancer distress (IES) in women who have undergone BLS, in comparison to normative data (MSCL/FACT-ES) and data from BSO patients.
    • To assess medical decision making, as measured by the Shared Decision Making Questionnaire (SDM-Q-9) and Decision Regret Scale (DRS), and determine factors associated with the risk of reducing surgical treatment choice.
    • To assess adverse events, graded using CTCAE v5.0.
