We are a group of health care providers at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, IL who specialize in female pelvic floor disorders.
We have an interest in understanding what places women at risk for developing pelvic floor disorders, such as pelvic organ prolapse,
urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic girdle pain.
We would like to invite Female Triathletes over the age of 18 years old to participate in our nationwide survey study to better understand the triathlete population.
The survey will take about 10-15 minutes. All answers will be confidential and no identifying information will be collected. This study was approved by our hospital’s Institutional Review Board.
If you would like to participate in a raffle for a $100 gift card to www.amazon.com , you will be asked for contact information at the end of the survey. This information will not be linked to any of survey answers.
We will be happy to share the results of our study when they are available.
Due to the nature of this research, we are not able give medical advice through this forum. Our contact information is given at the end of the survey if you would like to contact us regarding the study or for more
information regarding pelvic floor disorders.
Thank you in advance for participating!
