The HERS Foundation's Twenty-Seventh Hysterectomy Conference will be held November 14th-15th, 2008 in Atlanta GA.
Become informed about female anatomy, the life-long functions of the female organs, the alternatives to hysterectomy, and the consequences of the surgery. Learn about the common reasons hysterectomy is recommended such as fibroids, endometriosis, endometrial hyperplasia, uterine or bladder prolapse, bleeding, and pelvic pain. Find out about the most frequently reported adverse effects of hysterectomy and removal of the ovaries (female castration), and some coping strategies for women who have had the surgery such as diet, exercise, acupuncture, acupressure, massage and reiki.
The conference will be of interest to everyone who is interested in women's health. Everyone is welcome.
