Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MUKWONAGO, Wis. - Jul 05, 2017 - Women typically have never heard of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) prior to the fateful examination which indicates they are experiencing the condition. Discovery upon diagnosis is unfortunately the end-result of months, sometimes years, with no clue what is causing painful, awkward, or embarrassing symptoms such as incontinence, constipation, vaginal or rectal pressure, vaginal tissue bulge, or painful intimacy. Physically incapacitating to varying degrees based on type(s) and grade of severity, POP makes a mess out of nearly every aspect of women’s lives.
While childbirth and menopause are the leading causes of pelvic organ prolapse, multiple additional lifestyle, behavioral, and comorbid health concerns such as heavy lifting, popular fitness activities such as jogging or running, chronic constipation, neuromuscular diseases, and hysterectomy, compound risk.
Sherrie Palm’s book Pelvic Organ Prolapse:The Silent Epidemic 3rd Ed will generate a much needed dialog to springboard POP awareness. Shrouded in silence despite nearly 4000 years on medical record, the voices of women experiencing POP are getting louder and stronger. Pelvic organ prolapse awareness will generate the next significant shift in women’s health directives.
“For a female health condition to be shrouded in silence because of embarrassment at this point in history, after all we have achieved as women, is unacceptable.”
~Sherrie Palm, APOPS Founder/Executive Director
“Sherrie’s willingness to give of herself to assist her sisters in the management of this condition is exemplary of her commitment and concern for women who experience POP. “
