Bladder weakness is much more common than most people think, but there is something that you can do to help.
Did you know that around one in three women will suffer from some form of incontinence at some point in their lives? Contiform (formally known as IncoFree) will help you to regain control of your bladder and take control of your life. Contiform pessary is a soft vaginal pessary which works by applying gentle pressure on your urethra to stop those embarrassing leaks, even during exercise.
Contiform can be worn all day, every day if required, or can be just worn during exercise if this is when you find you have problems. The starter pack is the ideal place to start if you're not sure what size is best for you. This handy pack includes everything you need to get started, including one of each size of pessary, a removal ribbon and instructions for use.
By wearing Contiform, you can free yourself from wearing pads and liners and deal with bladder weakness in a discreet and comfortable way. It also works in conjunction with conventional pelvic floor exercises to make them more effective and improve your muscle tone in the long-term.
To try for size, select the Contiform in the Medium size first. The Medium size is clearly marked with an 'M'. Once inserted, you should feel comfortable and you should not be experiencing urine leakage. If you do not feel comfortable or have difficulties emptying your bladder, whilst wearing medium sized Contiform, remove it and try the Small size, marked 'S'. Alternatively, try the Large size, if you find that you are still leaking, when fitted with the Medium size.
Frequently Asked Questions about Contiform (IncoFree)
Can Contiform be used with an IUD inserted? - No - this is because there's a risk the coil could be displaced when the Contiform is removed. The risk of this is reduced is the threads of the coil are shorter, but check with your Family Planning doctor before using Contiform.
Do I need to remove Contiform when going to the toilet? - No.
Can the device be used while menstruating? - Yes!
Do you need to lubricate before insertion? - No, simply moisten the device with water before insertion.
Can you have intercourse while wearing Contiform? - No.
You shouldn't use Contiform (or IncoFree) if:
- You are pregnant
- You have an IUD (Coil)
- You have any form of prolapse
- During intercourse
- Within 2 months of having a baby
- If you have a vaginal or bladder infection or vaginal soreness
Contiform is a CE Approved, Class 2a Medical Device.
How common is stress urinary incontinence (SUI)?
It is estimated that up to 1 in 3 women today suffer to some degree with
stress incontinence. This can affect women of all ages and may occur at any time, but often starts in pregnancy, after childbirth, or during menopause.
What causes stress urinary incontinence?
Stress incontinence is caused by weakness in the pelvic floor muscles which allows leakage during ordinary, everyday activities such as laughing, coughing, sneezing, lifting, or when you are most active.
Who can use Contiform vaginal pessary?
Any woman who has stress incontinence. Women who decline surgery or are not suitable for surgery can use the contiform device. Women who want more children or are waiting for surgery can also benefit from contiform.
Contiform is unsuitable for moderate to severe prolapse.
When do I use Contiform and how long does it last?
You can wear Contiform all day, or use it only when you are exercising
With everyday use Contiform will last up to 30 days. If used only 2 or 3 times a week the device will last more than 30 days.
How does Contiform work?
Contiform is an intravaginal device shaped like a hollow tampon. Made of medical grade Santaprene.
Contiform can be easily inserted and removed by a user, in much the same way you would insert and remove a tampon.
Contiform is softly contoured to be worn discreetly and comfortably inside the vagina to support the urethra and restore your body’s natural anatomy
Choosing the correct size Contiform pessary for you:.
Initially try the medium size. Ensure the front of the device rests behind the pubic bone and the back of the device sits under/behind the cervix.
Cough, jump or run to check for any leakage and movement. If there is still leakage or movement you will need to fit a large size. Some women prefer to try Contiform in the privacy of their home. Consequently, we recommend that they consult their Healthcare Profession
al, Nurse Continence Advisor before using Contiform
How do I know when to replace?
The contiform device is manufactured with a slit in the inside of the collar. This is to aid the folding and squeezing prior to insertion. The slit also acts as a gauge as to when the device should be replaced. Over
30 days the slit will develop over the top of the collar which compromises the efficacy. This is when the device should be replaced.
How do I clean Contiform?
Wash with warm water and unperfumed soap and rinse well before the first and subsequent uses.
Do I have to use the contiform device removal ribbon?
No. But it will make the removal easier similar to removing a tampon.
Can Contiform be used if the patient has prolapse?
If the patient can retain a tampon, then the Contiform MAY help
in the prevention of stress urinary incontinence”.
“The device is not designed to elevate prolapse (i.e., patients with prolapse usually cannot retain a tampon) “
Reference: Clinical Paper Update:the Contiform” intravaginal device in four sizes for the treatment of stress incontinence W.A.Allen et al Int Urogynecol J (3008)
Why does the Contiform have a split inside the collar?
To avoid any possibility of obstruction to the urinary flow rate, Contiform
dies were improved to create an inherent weakness in the anterior ring (the collar) of the device. This allows Contiform to be more easily folded for insertion into the vagina, and reduces any excess pressure on the bladder neck which could affect the flow rate.
“.....Contiform does not have a significant obstructive effect, although three (3) individuals noted a significant reduction in the flow rate when using a new device – after approximately 48 hrs a softening of the device was noted and flow appeared to normalize thereafter”.

- Not quite right Review by Erin
I think that the ribbon that can be used for removal is worrying insubstantial and it's in a very inaccessible place if it does happen to break, however, if the product had been useable I would have risked this.
I felt really disappointed that it wasn't available in smaller sizes as it's obviously an effective product. An expensive mistake. (Posted on 2 August 2013)
- Unsure of this product Review by Amelia
- Far too large! Review by Bag Lady
Dear Bag Lady, I am sorry the Contiform Pessary isn't the right fit for you. Did you purchase the Contiform Pessary Starter Pack which contains all three sizes? We recommend always buying the Contiform Pessary Starter Pack to get the correct size for your vaginal pessary. It is vital that you get the sizing of a pessary right to ensure it does the job properly when you exercise. Please let us know if you haven't tried the other sizes in this range and we'll do our best to help you, Contiform is an excellent product and many women get a great deal of support (literally) and relief from bladder leaks when it is correctly sized.
Here to help - please contact us - we want you to be happy!

- Leak free classes! Yipee! Review by Zumba Zoe
Highly recommended, I'm a convert. (Posted on 17 July 2013)
- Small works for me Review by Aaminah K
Easy to use - it sort of folds into shape for insertion, and it is amazing that a little thing like this can stop the treadmill leaks! Sad that I have a large style that is totally unused - maybe it might be an idea to buy single ones individually - can't imagine selling it on eBay! (Posted on 19 July 2013)
- it works but the product doesn't last long. Review by Welsh Lady
Dear Welsh Lady
Thank you for your feedback. Please note that the Contiform Vaginal Pessary is designed with a crease in it, to make insertion a lot easier. So it is 'folded' for insertion, then it expands into position to do it's supporting. A Contiform should last you at least 30 days if you use it daily so please if you feel that this is possibly a manufacturing fault and it has not lasted as it should (which it seems is the case) do please contact me personally and I shall arrange for a replacement Contiform pessary to be sent to you.
Both StressNoMore and Contiform want you to be delighted with your purchase so please get in touch.

- It worked but is cracked/perished on inside after just one day! Review by Maryru
You did not leave an e mail address so I am sorry that I unable to contact you directly to address your concerns. Thank you for contacting us. Contiform has been manufactured with a slit on the inside of the collar. The slit will appear when you first fold the device, this does not affect the efficacy of Contiform. It has been manufactured like this so that you can fold it easily for insertion and also to minimise the risk of urine retention. It is perfectly safe to use and there are no hygiene issue as long as you wash it with unperfumed soap and rinse it well with water each time you remove it. Depending on the frequency of use, the slit will gradually lengthen until it reaches over the top of the collar. This is an indication the device needs to be replaced. Contiform guarantee that the device will last a minimum of 30 days when used daily. Contiform is CE Certificated, and an approved product supplied to the NHS. This information is clearly stated in the Instruction for use leaflet that comes with the starter packs and replacement units but you might have missed seeing it when you received your Contiform pessary. I hope this will be helpful. If you want to speak to someone directly at Contiform they have stated that they are happy to talk with you to reassure you that it is perfectly safe. If you'd like to forward me your telephone number I can arrange for this.
Assuring you of our best attention at all times

- Fantastic Product Review by KateBoo
- Expensive and doesn't work Review by Oops
Thank you for your review, I am sorry that the Contiform Pessary has not helped you and didn't work for you. I would urge you to keep trying another product - pessary use and fitting can be difficult, but the 'trial and error' is often worth it when you find the right one.
We have just taken on a new German range called Contam Vaginal Pessary. This is initially soaked in water and it becomes soft and pliable but remarkably supportive. We have a number we can make available as samples so if you would like to try one with our complements please contact me personally.

- Great but recent purchase split sooner than usual Review by Keen runner
Yes, we do ship to the USA, and shipping costs £19.95.
In GBPounds, the Contiform New User Kit costs £74.99.
In total, in GBP, is £94.94.
A rough conversion using Google, in to USD, is $140.44, however, for a definitive conversion, and any charges, please contact your bank.
I hope this helps,
Contiform is good, but I don't know if it will work for you as you have a hysterectomy. I am afraid I cannot see if Contiform is available in the US and we would not be able to supply you as it would need FDA clearance and we do not have that. Customs would probably intercept the parcel and confiscate it - I am sorry.
Please see if Contiform (contiforminternational.com) can help you further.

Unfortunately it is not recommended to use the contiform if you have any form of prolapse. Have you considered the Kegel8 Ultra 20? http://www.stressnomore.co.uk/kegel8-ultra.html
t can be a devastating blow to realise that you are no longer in complete control of your body. Kegel8 understand all too well the effect that pelvic floor dysfunction has on every single aspect of a woman's life. Whether bladder weakness has you too embarrassed or anxious to leave the house, prolapse is making it difficult to go to the toilet or an uninspired sex life has led to relationship problems, in a matter of just 12 weeks, the Kegel8 Ultra 20 can help you to turn things around.
Did you know that it is estimated 1 in 2 women over the age of 50 will suffer some form of prolapse - that's when, one or more of the pelvic organs descends into the vagina. Medical evidence suggests that pelvic floor exercises will actually improve the symptoms and in many cases can stop a prolapse from worsening.
It's simple; with the use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and electrical nerve stimulation. Electrical impulses are introduced to the body by a probe, or electrode pad, which stimulate a contraction within the pelvic floor. These contractions exercise the muscles and, as with any kind of exercise performed regularly, build strength and tone.
If you don't want to or can't use a vaginal probe they have the solution. Kegel8 is the only home-use electronic toner in the world to use outside stimulation with clinically proven results.
We truly recommend that you have a read through the reviews for the Kegel8 and see if this is something that could change your life too.
