That means one must find a doctor. If no insurance, go online to look at Obamacare programs. Otherwise, every county has low-cost clinics (sometimes free), some run by the Health Dept, others by medical schools or charities. ...Read more

Hello! To get to the point, I want a hysterectomy. The problem is, I cant find a doctor willing to give me one because I am only 18. Any advice?
Reasoning: In the US, there must be a reason for a hysterectomy other than the desire for one. Perhaps a doctor in another country might offer one if you lied but I cannot recommend that.
