Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MUKWONAGO, Wis. - Jul 05, 2017 - Women are seldom familiar with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) prior to being diagnosed, typically the end-result of 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.
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, pelvic organ prolapse awareness will generate the next significant shift in women’s health.
“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
