PRLog - Nov. 15, 2012 - MUKWONAGO, Wis. -- Sherrie Palm’s campaign to establish recognition of pelvic organ prolapse began with the release of her award winning book Pelvic Organ Prolapse The Silent Epidemic.  Palm went on to found APOPS, Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support, a 501(c)3 which provides awareness,  guidance, and support for women with POP.  Palm’s newly released second edition evolves the dialogue beyond POP basics and Palm’s personal experience with POP to address concerns women have about transvaginal mesh complications, impact to intimacy, and pelvic health maintenance.  

Pelvic organ prolapse has been on medical record for over 4000 years yet millions of women suffer in silence because there is little dialogue or awareness about the health condition. Women suffering with signs of POP are typically unfamiliar with this common, cryptic, women’s health condition because symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse are embarrassing and are seldom discussed.

Pelvic organ prolapse is seldom life threatening but it is always life altering. POP is a GLOBAL women's health pandemic; millions of women in both developing and developed countries suffer in silence from the physical, emotional, social, sexual, and financial ramifications of POP.

Recognition of pelvic organ prolapse can only occur when we share what we know with others. It is my hope that as we continue to network, guide, and nurture women with POP, this condition will soon become common knowledge."

Sherrie Palm, APOPS Founder/CEO

Common symptoms of POP:

Ø  Urinary incontinence.

Ø  Vaginal/rectal pressure, vaginal tissue bulge.

Ø  Chronic constipation.

Ø  Pain with intimacy.

Ø  Rectal/vaginal/back/pelvic pain.
