"What if you meet the right man down the line? You might change your mind!" "Why waste a good pair of ovaries?" Carmel is a lesbian with no interest in having children. She has polycystic ovary syndrome. She wants a hysterectomy. It shouldn't be that hard, right? To meet the archaic criteria, she plots to curate the perfect nuclear household: a loving husband, a couple of kids and a red SMEG fridge. But family is never straightforward – especially a fake one... It's hysterical. It's hormonal. It's Hersterectomy.
