  • Perceived effectiveness for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: I had my right ovary and flapian tube removed, when they did the surgery they found that my left ovary started to grow back with the flapian tube. All was removed including the rest of my endometrium and I have the color back in my face, I am able to do more than I was. I don't have the pain in my stomach like I did and it was a life changing event completely. I am glad that this done and I would do it again if I had to.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
