Hysteria

Hysteria is the ancient Greek word for womb.

Hysteria is also the first mental disorder attributed to women: nervousness,

hallucinations, emotional outbursts and various urges of the sexual variety.

Today, what the ancient Greeks or Romans or Arabs would consider to be

hysteria is a wide range of psychological disorders, from schizophrenia to panic

attacks.

What is a womb?

The womb is a major female hormone-responsive reproductive sex organ of

humans and most other mammals.
