Description
When this outstanding medical guide was published in 1993, nearly 600,000 women a year were advised to undergo expensive and potentially risky hysterectomies. Though the issue has garnered much press since, the rate of needless and avoidable hysterectomies has not dropped off significantly. Furthermore, 1 woman in 15 (or nearly 10 million) still suffers chronic pelvic pain and gets bad or incomplete advice on how to treat it.Hailed by Library Journal as "one of the best women's health books," You Don't Need a Hysterectomy provides authoritative, compassionate advice on the new and effective ways to treat chronic pelvic pain and related gynecological symptoms without radical surgery. Totally revised and updated with up-to-the minute information, You Don't Need a Hysterectomy is an invaluable resource for women.
