THE H WORD discusses the common reasons hysterectomy is recommended, the diagnostic studies that should be performed to obtain a diagnosis, alternatives in treatment, the risks of those alternatives, and strategies to help women cope with the lifelong aftereffects of removal of the uterus and ovaries. THE H WORD revolutionizes our understanding of female anatomy and the important lifelong functions of the female organs. It reveals the solution to the complex problem of hysterectomy performed without the information that is necessary for informed consent. The HERS Foundation’s 51-city, 51-week Protest & Play tour is the backdrop of THE H WORD, a book that takes an unflinching look at the environment of hysterectomy in America.
