PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE: THE SILENT EPIDEMIC What Is POP and Why Do We Need to Know About It? 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 vaginal childbirth, menopause, genetics, chronic constipation, or heavy lifting, a woman's pelvic organs can shift or drop. 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.
