9781622124046: Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic

Pelvic Organ Prolapse, or POP, is a little talked about female health issue that half of all childbearing women will experience late in life. There are more than 300,000 surgeries for POP annually. Due to various causes such as menopause, estrogen loss, genetics, childbirth or heavy lifting, a woman's pelvic organs can shift or drop. This can lead to POP symptoms, including some painful and embarrassing ones, as well as impacting a woman's sexuality. The condition has probably always existed, but has received little press or public acknowledgement so women could learn about the condition and treatment options. This book on POP fills an unfortunate void in women's health awareness. Sherrie Palm writes about her own personal experiences in Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic. She had never heard about the condition until she needed surgery for it. Palm explores the subject from all angles, providing the information women need to recognize the symptoms of POP and to become advocates for their own health. Pelvic Organ Prolapse: The Silent Epidemic named the winner for Women's Health in the USA Book News National "BEST BOOKS 2009" Awards. http://www.usabooknews.com/2009bestbooksawards.html More information about Sherrie Palm, and how she is creating awareness for this women's health issue can be found on her website: http://sherriepalm.com/home About the Author: First-time author Sherrie Palm is a retired business owner. She lives in Wisconsin with her significant other; she has four children and seven grandchildren. Palm plans to conduct educational seminars on POP. She is also actively involved with the local Special Olympics and will donate a portion of the book's proceeds to the group.

From the Author:

I'm trying to change the awareness curve  on pelvic organ prolapse; this extremely common female health issue is still for the most part in the closet despite being on medical record since Egyptian times. Studies preach it as an "over 50" women's health issue but I speak with women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s every day who are dealing with POP issues. My book, the seminars I host, answering questions on the Medhelp.org Urogynecology Forum, and APOPS, Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support, a global live, local support network for women with POP that I have initiated are ways I am trying to get the word out to women AHEAD of the curve. Currently women find out about POP after they are diagnosed; there is little knowledge or recognition prior to dx.

Half of all women over 50 have at least one of the five types of POP, but since childbirth is the leading cause of POP, women should be made aware of the signs and symptoms and causes of POP prior to childbirth so they learn to recognize it early and can seek less aggressive treatment for it. I speak with women daily in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who are trying to understand what to do about POP symptoms. Menopause is the 2nd leading cause of POP (there are other causes as well), so this is a health issue that hits both ends of the age spectrum for the female population. Women suffer from pain, fecal and urinary incontinence, chronic constipation, painful intercourse, lack of sexual sensation, and it has a huge impact to relationships; it impacts women physically, emotionally, socially, sexually, and financially.

When I was diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse, I'd never heard of it, never heard of a urogynecologist, never heard of a pessary. Pelvic organ prolapse is an extremely common female health issue that for the most part is in the closet; The POP Awareness  Campaign is an initiative to create much needed recognition of the symptoms/causes/treatment options for POP.
