I would only add that I'd still be concerned. If your mother was negative and she still had ovarian cancer, it's possible there is a mutation that is yet to be discovered. I know I am super proactive, but my personal inclination would be to remove my ovaries at SOME point...that point would be debatable & I'd possibly wait longer than i would have had i not experienced the consequences of menopause yet (i'd take hormones) -- I am BRCA+1 with a sister whose ovarian cancer was diagnosed in a preemptive strike (BSO) at 48 years young.
