Hello, my name is Jacqueline and I need your help in doing a project on hysterectomy and I have nothing. I've looked all over the net and if you have any info on this subject could you please let me know. Thank you, Jacqueline

Thanks for your note. To learn more about hysterectomies, I suggest that you contact a site specific to women's health. For instance, Our Bodies Ourselves/The Boston Women's Health Book Collective. You should also check our Women's Health links.

One thing to note is that for years doctors were unnecessarily prescribing hysterectomies supposedly as a preventative measure toward cancer. The Women's health movement advocated greater education so that women could make an informed choice rather than a reactionary one.

I hope that helps and good luck with your search.
