The subliminal message the feminine gender receive from early childhood on we should not look at, talk about, or acknowledge the vagina. It’s no wonder women have a difficult time understanding female pelvic health, or interpreting symptoms such as incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, or vaginal tissue bulge. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is estimated to impact 50% of the female population, and these symptoms along with others are clear indicators – yet women are seldom screened for POP during routine pelvic exams despite childbirth and menopause being leading POP causal factors.
There is little conversation about pelvic organ prolapse at this stage of women’s health evolution, absurd considering POP has been on medical record for nearly 4000 years. This book overrides stigma and generates open dialogue to enable women to recognize symptoms indicating POP. Knowledge of pelvic organ prolapse is a pivotal segment of women’s health, and POP awareness will unquestionably generate the next significant shift in women’s health. Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic shines a light for all women to recognize symptoms they don’t understand.
