POP RISK FACTOR QUESTIONNAIRE
All women should be routinely screened for pelvic organ prolapse after vaginal childbirth. We also feel all women should be routinely screened for POP sometime between peri-menopause and menopause and screened annually from that point forward during routine pelvic exams. Most women are unfamiliar with pelvic organ prolapse until after they are diagnosed with the condition; by that time, the type or types of POP occurring (there are five types of pelvic organ prolapse, women typically have more than one type) have progressed considerably to a more advanced grade. APOPS encourages the medical community to include POP screening during routine pelvic examinations. We also encourage women to self-screen with our questionnaire and if they have indicators of POP, to show the questionnaire to their physicians and request a POP evaluation during routine pelvic exams.
