Hysterectomy Risks and Alternatives

My guest this week is Nora Coffey, president of the HERS Foundation.

Nora was a guest on the show about a year ago. You can listen to that interview here. Now she joins us again to talk about her new book  (co-authored with Rick Schweikert).
hysterectomy risks and alternatives - The H Word
The H Word: The diagnostic studies to evaluate symptoms, alternatives in treatment, and coping with the aftereffects of hysterectomy.

If you think you don’t need to listen to this interview because noone is telling you to get a hysterectomy (castration) right now, I respectfully disagree.

Every woman should inform herself NOW before she’s faced with the decision.

After talking with Nora these two times, reading her book and from my own life hearing stories of women and their experience with hysterectomy (castration), I am convinced that there is a dreadful LACK of appreciation and understanding of the purpose of the female organs – on the part of medical professionals and we women ourselves.

The H Word tells you why hysterectomy is so commonly recommended, the diagnostic studies that should be performed first to evaluate suspect diagnoses, the treatment alternatives that exist, the benefits and risks of those treatments, and probably most importantly – the lifelong functions of the uterus and ovaries, and the lifelong consequences of their removal (castration).

I urge you to listen to this interview and spread the word amongst women you care about!

    I was lied to by a jealous woman who told me the truth after she deceived me about hysterectomy. An unnecessary hysterectomy has ruined my life. To all intact women reading this: Don’t believe a woman who says sex is better after hysterectomy/sex organ amputation, she is not being honest with you. Women saying things like “it’s the best thing I ever did” are trying to protect their self-image and may be jealous of you, because you are sexually intact. A woman can not achieve a uterine orgasm after being given a hysterectomy or female castration (ovary removal). There are loop-holes in all gynecological surgical consent forms allowing for sex organ amputation hysterectomy and female castration for benign conditions. 22 million women, alive today, didn’t become de-sexed in the U.S by being told the medical truth by gynecologists or their personnel. Please read all of the information on the HERS Foundation website, it is the accurate medical information. Read “The H Word” and tell every person you know. This legally false operation called hysterectomy is really sex organ amputation and it is epidemic in the U.S.A for benign medical conditions. Gynecologists are using cancer scare tactics to lure women into their operating rooms.
    Thank you HERS, keep up the good work warning women.

    I have uterine prolapse and cannot have sexual intercourse.

    Good to hear about all this, given this proceedure has been recommended to me by a doctor. It’s information I never heard of before. Thanks so much for getting this information out. I’m going to do some more research.

    Thank You so much for this information. Although, I really wish I could have read it 5 years ago before my hysterectomy. I’m only 33 and experiencing so many of the listed symptoms……I guess I feel a little better knowing I’m not going crazy!

    Thank You

    Thank you for interviewing Nora Coffey. Her message is so important. I was given an unnecessary hysterectomy/castration operation without my consent. As these doctors are continually allowed to do this to women, they get more bold, even to the point of altering consent forms which was done in my case. I adamantly refused, but that did not deter the doctor. These doctors are legally protected and there is no recourse for the victim and no one listens or cares. The HERS Foundation’s message is vitally important for the well being of all women. If any woman takes the time to do her own research, she will find that every thing Nora says is true. They’ve been doing this to women for over a hundred years, and no one will stop them.
