Person using the Ovacome ovarian cancer forum

Join the 15,000 people affected by ovarian cancer who use our online forum.

My Ovacome is an online community for anyone affected by ovarian cancer.

It is a safe, supportive space for people with ovarian cancer and their friends and families to share their experiences and offer each other encouragement, knowledge, understanding, and friendship. You can choose an anonymous username when you register, meaning that you can share your experiences and ask your questions in a more private way if you would prefer.

The Ovacome support and information team monitor the forum during office hours (Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm) to ensure that all information posted by members is accurate and the forum remains a safe space. If you have a question or concern about a particular post or comment, you can message our team about it through the forum.

The Ovacome team also regularly post information to help support you through ovarian cancer treatment and beyond.

"The online forum was an enormous help because I found that I could ask all the questions I needed to, and talk about all my worries and fears – things that I couldn’t say in front of my family because I didn’t want to upset them."

- Gill


What can I post about on the forum?

The My Ovacome forum is a space to discuss anything relating to a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Regular topics include:

  • Advice around having chemotherapy
  • Side effects of maintenance therapies, such as PARP inhibitors, and how to manage these
  • Managing menopausal symptoms
  • Recovery from surgery
  • Questions about medical terms
  • Living with a stoma
  • Diet and exercise
  • Blood tests and scans
  • Coping with anxiety
  • Speaking to family and friends


"The Ovacome online forum has been an absolute life saver for me. From the moment I was diagnosed, the other members on there, plus all the information available through the site, helped me enormously. There also seem to be more and more women being diagnosed with borderline tumours and so I try and help them through my own experiences, where I can."
