POP-RFQ: POP RISK FACTOR QUESTIONNAIRE
A variety of life events, behaviors, and co-existing condition cause pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Childbirth and estrogen loss at menopause are the leading causes. All women should be screened for pelvic organ prolapse during routine pelvic exams, but no standardized protocol currently exists.
There are five types of POP, and women commonly have more than one type. Most women are unfamiliar with pelvic organ prolapse until after they are diagnosed with the condition. Typically by that time, the type or types of POP occurring have progressed to a more advanced grade of severity.
APOPS encourages the medical community to both screen for POP during routine pelvic examinations, and educate their patients about POP ahead of the curve. We also encourage women to self-screen with our POP-RFQ questionnaire. When women experience POP symptoms, they should show the questionnaire to their physicians, and request a POP evaluation during a routine pelvic exam.
