Request for images[edit]

OMG pics plz (talk) 13:37, 9 December 2007 (UTC)


Don't know why clarification was needed for the word mesh. It's a basic word: recommend you read

I removed a weird, unsourced and wrong-seeming bit in the "grading" section: "Also referred to as Vaginal Mesh, this synthetic fiber is used to keep babies safe from injury during pregnancy. It was created as a response to the high mortality rate babies in woman that had a wider vagina due to excess sexual intercourse." Leigh Honeywell (talk) 04:45, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Presently unhelpful, and duplicated, image[edit]

All those GA, Ap, Ba, etc., items in the illustration need explanation in the text, or the image is more confusing than anything else. It also shouldn't be used twice in the same article. This this article covers a range of condition, there is no need for the infobox to have an illustration.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  22:00, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Move of article[edit]

As seen with this link, Mbpippen moved the article away from "Female genital prolapse" to "Pelvic Organ Prolapse," stating, "This condition is internationally recognized as Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). The ICD uses genital prolapse, but women are told they have POP."

Two things to keep in mind are WP:Common name and Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Medicine-related articles#Article titles. And, of course, per WP:Article titles, we don't capitalize our titles throughout in cases like these.

I'll contact WP:Med about weighing in on this topic. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 23:29, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Capital letters are not needed in the article title. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists uses pelvic organ prolapse [1] as does Cochrane [2]. Drchriswilliams (talk) 23:45, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
agree w/ Drchriswilliams--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 11:22, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
Agree no caps needed. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 12:30, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Not see in the ref to support the new title. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 13:00, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

So are you thinking we should move the article back, Doc James, or keep it titled Pelvic organ prolapse? I haven't yet done the WP:Google test on the terms. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 21:33, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
I do not have the internet access to figure it out right now. And thus also remain undecided. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:03, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
Okay. We'll get back to this eventually. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 03:36, 5 March 2017 (UTC)
