Ovariectomy (OVX) is the surgical removal of the ovaries from the female reproductive tract.


Loss of the ovaries reduces circulating estrogen levels in female animals.

Translational Studies:

The ovariectomy in laboratory research animals simulates lowered circulating estrogen levels seen in aging, hypoestrogenemia, osteoporosis, menopause, and endocrine disorders with reproductive consequences.
