Description

Premium Sea Pearls Plus are a natural support solution and a great natural alternative to a pessary for pelvic organ prolapse

Sea Pearls Plus help to provide natural support for women suffering with pelvic organ prolapse. Unlike traditional pessaries for prolapse, Sea Pearls are not abrasive, do not need fitting by a professional, inexpensive and far less invasive.

Sea Pearls are 100% natural sea sponges which have been hand-selected for their size and density. Wearing the Sea Pearls in the vagina can help to support the fallen organ and provide relief from the everyday symptoms of prolapse. Sea Pearls Plus are a larger size, but unlike traditional pessaries, they can be trimmed to give you a perfect fit, because every woman is different.

Whilst wearing a pessary cannot cure a prolapse, they can help to give you relief from the symptoms of prolapse and can also help to prevent a prolapse from getting worse, as they work to support the internal organs.

We recommend using a gentle, natural, water-based lubricant to make it easier to insert the sponges. Don't be alarmed when you first open the packet - at first glance, Sea Pearls Plus do seem quite large. However, once you have wet them and squeezed the excess water out, you will realise how soft they are and they can be trimmed to fit. If you accidentally trim them too small, you can wear two Sea Pearls at the same time.

Sea Pearls Plus come in one size, and you will receive two sponges (so you have one to wash and one to wear), an illustrated instruction guide with details on how the Sea Pearl can help your prolapse and how to clean it properly, and also a cotton bag to store your sponges safely.


Caring For Your Sea Sponges

Sponges are delicate, so great care should be taken when cleaning and using them. When cared for properly, sponges last between 3 and 6 months, and can last even longer.

Directions:

1. Use a chemical-free, natural soap or soak for 5 to10 minutes in a cup of warm water with one of the following:

  • 2 to 3 drops of tea tree oil
  • 1 tsp of hydrogen peroxide (this helps to eliminate discoloration)
  • 1 tbsp of vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of baking soda (this helps to restore density and volume)

2. Rinse sponge and squeeze out the excess water.

Please note:

  • Do not boil your sponge! Boiling toughens and shrinks sea sponges.
  • Do not soak your sponges longer than the recommended time as this can cause your sponge to deteriorate faster.
  • Do not use harsh chemicals or soaps!

Cleaning Your Sea Sponges

Sea Pearls can be rinsed and reused multiple times and they do not need to be sanitized after each use. We recommend that you clean your sponge:

  • Before using for the first time
  • Once daily during use
  • If the sponge develops an unpleasant odour
  • Prior to storing

Sponges should be completely dry before being stored and should be kept in a breathable container or bag.

Trimming Your Sea Sponges

When wet, sea sponges compress and become extremely soft and pliable. If you think your sponge is too large, it can easily be trimmed to a custom size.

  • Sponges are easiest to trim when dry but can also be carefully trimmed when wet
  • Do not cut your sponge in half as Sea Pearls are trimmed to a specific shape
  • Using scissors, trim around the perimeter of the sponge, a little at a time until you reach the desired size. Remember; the more you trim, the less liquid it can absorb.

If the surface of your sponge becomes ragged, don't tear or rip the sponge; instead, trim the loose pieces off with scissors until the surface is smooth. This will extend the lifetime of your sponge.


What Are Sea Sponges?

Sea sponges are plant-like creatures that grow in colonies in the ocean; Premium Sea Pearls comes from the Mediterranean. Sea sponges are the simplest form of multi-cellular animals and have no nervous system or brain.

Mediterranean Sea Sponges

How Are Sea Sponges Sustainable?

Sea sponges are a renewable resource as they possess remarkable powers of regeneration; they have the ability to regrow lost parts broken off by water currents. Sponge fragments can also settle in new locations and regrow into a clone of its parent sponge. When sponges are harvested, divers cut them so the base of the sponge remains intact; this ensures that the sponge has the ability to regenerate and regrow so they can return and harvest them over and over again.

Sea sponges reproduce sexually, however, most sponges are both female and male and will play either role during reproduction. When a sponge acts as a male, it releases sperm that travel and fertilize eggs in a sponge acting as a female. The fertilized eggs develop into baby sponges that are released into the water, they then settle down and start growing. The next time the sponges reproduce, they may change sexual roles.

How Are Sea Sponges Harvested?

Sponges are harvested by hand-cutting the sponge, or by using a hook and tearing the sponge free. Research has shown that cutting the sponge and leaving the base intact is the best method because it encourages a speedier regrowth. In areas where sponge diving is permitted, divers are required to harvest sponges by cutting rather than tearing the sponge free.

There are several measures in place to protect marine ecosystems and the sponge population:

  • All sponges harvested must have a minimum dimension of 5 inches.
  • There are over 5000 varieties of sponges, and only a small percentage are harvested for commercial use; these are generally not found in coral reef areas.
  • Sponge harvesting is strictly prohibited in sanctuaries such as the Biscayne National Park and the Everglades National Park.

Waste of money Review by Debbie
Product Rating
I had high hopes for these, as they seemed like the answer. They are, sadly not. I've basically wasted £25 . They are uncomfortable, don't work, and hard to get out. Why doesn't someone invent something with a string to help get it out. I also felt quite irritated, internally, after trying them for a few hours. All in all, I would say, thumbs down. They didn't work for me. (Posted on 5 May 2016)

Very happy with product Review by Freebee
Product Rating
I use Jade and Pearl Sea Pearls because I have a vaginal vault prolapse resulting from a hysterectomy several year ago. I don't know what I would do without them. The larger the better for me (I've never cut them down but fold them up tightly and insert using olive oil as a lubricant. I do find that they can slip slightly at times during the day, depending upon how active I'm being, but it isn't a problem to remove, wash carefully and re-insert as necessary. I don't know what I would do without them. (Posted on 14 July 2015)

Recommended this by Physio. Sizing wasn't a problem, it gives me bulk which stops me leaking urine when I run, so it does what I want. Happy customer. (Posted on 12 December 2014)

Worth a try Review by Prunella
Product Rating
I am 61, and undergoing investigations into my Grade 1 prolapse and my difficulty having bowel movements. I hoped the Sea Pearls pessary would tide me over until I was offered treatment. The sponge was soft, needed little trimming, and was easy to insert (roll it up really tightly). However I could not get it to support my cervix; it slid up next to it.

The Sea Pearls pessary didn't work for me, but our bodies are all different, and it might suit other people. (Posted on 7 March 2014)

.work really well for1st degree prolapse Review by Fay
Product Rating
I decided to buy these sponges before buying a ring pessary as you could fit them yourself and didnt need to get sized. They were big when I first got them but I have cut them down to the size that is comfortable for me which is about the size of a large used tampon and maybe a bit shorter so I have about three or four from one sponge. I disinfect with tea tree oil in warm water as it says on the instructions and then dry. On using I wet them and squeeze out any water, put on quite a bit of lubricant gel and hey presto. If it starts to slide out just push it in further. When you are using them you shouldnt feel them at all. Its just a matter of trial and error in getting the size that is comfortable for you.
ps I would never try to use them in the size that they come in. (Posted on 26 November 2013)

not for me Review by cath
Product Rating
Tried sponges to support a mild cystocele as I can't use oestrogen cream. They looked enormous and though soft when wet I found they absorbed any lubricant so were very uncomfortable and painful to insert. Cut one into 3 pieces but still could not insert properly. Disappointed. (Posted on 8 October 2013)

Product Questions

Hi I am pregnant and have cystocele and rectocele can I use a sea pearl during pregnancy?
6
Hi, I'm keen to try sea sponges for grade 2 cystocele and rectocele but I'm concerned about its placement and removal as I've "lost" tampons in the past which had to be removed by a nurse and was advised not to use tampons. So I'm slightly scared that this might happen with the sea sponges?

How do you remove the Sea Pearls?
Thank you

Hi I have just started to use the sea pearl sponge, I needed to trim it quite a bit off as really large, did every thing it said put plenty of KY jelly on , fitted it , and after a while it keeps slipping down which is uncomfortable , are there some people who can not wear these, or could it be I trimmed to much off ? I was really hoping these would help, but know not sure . Feeling disappointed.

Hi Emma thank you for your reply on the 2nd oct. I should have said that I tried the sea pearls for a bladder prolapse, and had difficulty keeping it in after I had trimmed it down to insert. I use the Kegel ultra 20 in a morning which I put KY Jelly on the probe , could it be because of that , is it causing it to slip down? I don`t know what I can do. one lady at stress no more suggested Incostress , but I`m not sure, please advise.

Have an anterior vaginal wall prolapse which have had since childbirth nearly 30 years ago; however it is recently much worse and now is protruding most of the day (used to be only at end of long tiring day). It is about size of a walnut and I can push it back in, but it just comes right out again... I tried an 'Incostress' some time ago but it just would not stay in, nor would a tampon when I tried it (for old times' sake - am post menopause!), so everything has obviously got horribly slack and I am very depressed about it. Do you think the sea pearls are suitable for this kind of prolapse and with the lack of tone in pelvic floor? I fear the prolapse is affecting my bladder as I find the urge to urinate musch more frequent and urgent and can only envisage all this getting much worse. Am not keen to consider surgery or even a pessary as I know they can lead to thrush and other problems. I think I will order the sea pearls anyway, but would be very grateful for your considered opinion on the likelihood of success - I know it is difficult for you to say, but you may have experience of similar prolapse to mine and know whether or not it is feasible to expect sea pearl sponges to work. Many thanks - so delighted to find out about the sponges, because even if they do not help me it is such a wonderful natural alternative to surgery for many women so well done everyone at Jade & Pearl!

Is it OK to continue to do pelvic floor exercises whilst wearing the sea pearl?

How hygienic are these ?. I would be worried about patients being able to clean these adequately and about risk of infection with bacteria being retained within the pores.
