If you suffer with a 3rd degree prolapse or procidentia, the Gellhorn pessary can help you to relieve the uncomfortable symptoms and enjoy your life again.
This Gellhorn pessary is designed for use in women with severe 3rd degree prolapse and procedentia.
Pessaries are used as a first-line treatment in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and are designed to support your pelvic organs and help to keep them in the right place. They are also an effective tool for managing pelvic organ prolapse without surgery.
This diagram shows how to insert a Gellhorn Pessary. The 'disc' part should face upwards and the stem should face downwards.
This particular style of pessary is designed for women with severe or third-degree pelvic organ prolapse and helps to support your internal organs. Whilst pessaries cannot cure a pelvic organ prolapse, they help to manage and slow the progression of a prolapse by adding support to the vagina and increasing the tightness of the muscles and tissues of the pelvis.
Gellhorn Pessaries are one of the most popular styles of pessary, and we are pleased to be able to offer a range of sizes for your comfort and convenience.
This pessary is made from flexible silicone for easier insertion and features multiple drainage holes for hygiene and comfort. The stem means that insertion and removal is easy.
This pessary is available in the following diameters: 6.4cm, 7cm, 7.6cm
Please note: initial pessary fitting and sizing should be carried out by a trained healthcare professional.

If I knew how to do it, I would willingly do so.
Please, please can you help?
I am sorry this is so traumatic, both for you and your Mother. it will be difficult to insert because of her age, she probably has vaginal atrophy which makes the tissue very delicate and even a touch can cause bleeding. I wonder if a topical oestrogen for a weeks before her next fitting would help to ease the pain for her, it plumps the tissue out, and as it is used topically it makes it easier to insert the pessary. It is worth asking your Doctor. I wonder if your Mum would be better at a continence clinic - or certainly a specialist pessary fitter who does it day in and day out. A pessary is brilliant for support so do please keep asking for help, you need someone who fits them day in and day out and can handle your Mum properly. I do know that the NHS is giving more priority to pessary use, and Clinicians are being trained up in their droves for fitting so this is all positive stuff - I hope your Mum will benefit from this improvement in knowledge and education with a more comfortable fitting next time.
As an aside I had a question from a man whose mother is the same age as yours, she has a rectal prolapse and after every poo he has to manually put back the anus. Degrading for both him and her, and a terrible indictment of care for elderly women.
Keep asking, keep chasing for a skilled pessary fitter. My thoughts are with you, I share your desperation/frustration/agony.
