Wandering Womb Lapel Pin

Doctors used to think "hysteria" was caused by a woman's womb getting up to wander around her body. Various strategies then had to be used to get the womb to go back to its normal place. If it seems a little peculiar that doctors thought an internal organ wormed its way around inside a person's body, well...it was. But that didn't stop people from believing it for a long time. To celebrate the peculiarity of medicine's relationship with female anatomy, the SciShow team has created this wandering womb pin which you can attach to you wherever you would like your womb to wander today.
