Reviews the book The UNhysterectomy: Solving Your Painful, Heavy Bleeding Without Major Surgery by Holly Bridges. Bridges argues for a rethinking of gynecologists’ aggressive approaches to treating women’s gynaecological problems, in particular heavy menstrual bleeding. Using her personal story as well as other case studies, Bridges shows that heavy menstrual bleeding can be successfully treated through minimally invasive surgery. Compared to hysterectomy, the recovery time is much quicker and there are many fewer short and long-term side effects.
