dc.description.abstractAn ex-post facto nonexperimental study was conducted to determine the difference in body image of women in the developmental stages of young adulthood and middle adulthood after having a hysterectomy. The conceptual framework was based on Schilder’s (1950) concept of body image and Kaguler and Kaguler’s (1979) concept of developmental stages. The sample consisted of 33 subjects; 15 subjects in the young adulthood and 18 subjects in the middle adulthood group. Young adulthood consisted of an age range of 20-35 years, and middle adulthood consisted of an age range of 36-50 years. The post hysterectomy period ranged from 2 to 6 months. Body image was determined by the three combined scores of the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (Total P score, the Physical Self score, and the Personal Self score). The t test was used to analyze the data. The results showed no significant difference in the body image scores between the two groups at the .05 level.
