University of Chicago Information Sheet

This series covers information sheets about POP from professional health organisations. These pages, though they don't necessarily go into a great deal of detail, are a good place to start. They help you gain a clear understanding of POP.

The University Of Chicago Medical Center

The University of Chicago Medical Centre has created an information sheet on prolapse which can be found here: Female Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
The strengths of this information sheet include:
  • A methodical approach that clearly outlines the types and causes of POP
  • Information with a good scientific basis
  • Detail on a variety of management options, including biofeedback (which is not often featured on information sheets)
One weakness of this information sheet is that it refers to diagrams that are not included. However, it is well worth reading, particularly for women who want an introduction to what is involved in biofeedback, and how it might help them.
