In this database, information on 199 women who underwent risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy (RRSO) is presented. The database was used to investigate the severity and duration of menopausal symptoms after RRSO in women with a BRCA1/2 mutation with the Menopause Rating Scale (MRS). The scores on the MRS were also investgiated per subscale: the psychological, somato-vegetative and urogenital subscale. With this database, descriptive statistics and logistic regression analyses can be performed. Variables in the database are connected to an ID-number. Variables presented in the database are: Patient characteristics; mutation type, age at RRSO, age at time of the questionnaire, time since RRSO, BMI, smoking, alcohol use, employment, physical activity, HRT use (current and past). Breast cancer history; yes/no, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, time since diagnosis. MRS; total score, scores per subscales.
