About this Group

Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support (APOPS) is a USA based 501(c)(3) nonprofit advocacy agency with global arms, founded in September 2010 to generate awareness of pelvic organ prolapse (POP), to provide support and guidance to women navigating the physical, emotional, social, sexual, fitness, and employment quality of life impact of POP, and to bridge the patient, healthcare, industry, research, and academic communities for the betterment of POP understanding and treatment evolution.

APOPS mission is to engender pelvic organ prolapse awareness, to listen to and acknowledge patient voice, to destigmatize vaginal health, to encourage and optimize vaginal health empowerment, and to clarify and quantify POP quality of life ramifications.

APOPS has considerable following within the EDS community given the POP/EDS intersect. We hear from patients daily how they struggle finding nonsurgical treatment success, how they struggle with surgical failure, and how amplified their pain, frustation, and suffering is with this comorbidity. APOPS frequently refers women in our space to the Ehlers-Danlos Society to enable them to capture more targeted insights to understand the EDS side of the equation.

APOPS has both a closed Facebook community to enable women to speak freely and comfortably about vaginal health issues (25,000 patient/practitioners members, 183 countries), as well as an open FB community.

Meeting Schedule

As part of our WHEN campaign (Women’s Health Empowerment Network), APOPS is in the beginning stages of building our First WHEN Women’s Pelvic Health Expo, August 2024. This two day event will clone the Ehlers-Danlos Society’s vision to include both patients and practitioners attendance to engender awareness and educate both sides of the fence.
