Background. Pelvic organ prolapse is a disorder with a worldwide spread. Aim of this paper was to investigate locus of control of behaviour in female patients before and after a session of rehabilitative behavioural therapy. Methods. Locus of Control of Behaviour (LCB) scale was administered to 300 women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse before and after treatment. T-Student was run for statistical evaluation. Results. A significant reduction in the LCB patients’ score was found after treatment. Conclusions. Results support the efficacy of rehabilitationbehavioural techniques in increasing patients' self-efficacy in their control over the prolapse symptoms.
