Per Dr Stanley West over 90% of all hysterectomies done in the U.S. are medically unnecessary, he certainly knows what he's talking about! Dr. West is the Chief of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York City.
He gives you all the details and reasons NOT to have a hysterectomy unless you have a malignant cancer. And he discusses hysterectomy side effects in detail.
If you have endometriosis, uterine fibroids, abnormal vaginal bleeding and your doctor is recommending a hysterectomy, make sure you read or order the book by Dr. Stanley West - The Hysterectomy Hoax - before you submit yourself to this surgery. And try to get a second opinion.
Have you had one? Tell me your story?
